Number Of Post Characters defines the number of characters received past the stop character that will still be counted as belonging to the same serial data block. Serial data blocks are related to routing the data in the serial-to-Ethernet direction. See serial-to-Ethernet data routing for more information.

Number of Post Characters is irrelevant when the Use Stop Character (U1) setting is 0 (disabled) because in this case the stop character is disabled.
