OK, after some research on Beckoff's info sys website, I have found the answer to my question here:

The Setup tab is used to pass CoE startup parameters to the slave devices when first powered up. This is useful when a (bad) slave device is replaced, and ensures the new device is setup correctly when plugged into the EhterCAT network for the first time.
