Nobody knows what this option does?!?

If I remember correctly this option was added because of large software scans. The Software Packages in a scan can be the majority of data in them. So reading them all from the db, comparing them and then performing updates can be fairly time consuming. Instead, this option will simply delete all the packages for this comptuer and then insert all of the packages in the scan when a full sync scan comes in. I have no idea at what point this is better than only updating the changes.
Dave is correct, it is really for troubleshooting purposes. I would not change this unless you are requested by support or are troubleshooting yourself.
