When you leave it out, it's simply not used. In broad general terms, ConTeXt is set up to allow you to just ignore any features you don't need.

Stopper is for when you want




or any other thing that suits you, to be placed after each number. "Nothing" is certainly one of the legitimate and common choices for this purpose, and Aditya took the step of actually defining it as "nothing" by typing "stopper=". (After the equals sign comes... you guessed it.) :) 

Doing such a "define it to be nothing" step would be especially helpful/important if you DID have it defined as something for a different part of your document, and then wanted to change styles part way through.
