The1 Orange box is the one that is referred to as 'scan for file additions and updates'. These need to be ticked if you want Serviio to register any new or updated (see red box) files in those folders. No new files (after the initial scan) will be added to the library if this box is not checked.
The Green box is the section that make Serviio update the library all on its own 'automatic update'. If you untick this box the library won't update till you click 'Force refresh' button. Serviio only checks for new additions/updates in folders that have this feature enabled (see orange box).
The Red box is the one that makes Serviio monitor the files currently in your share folders and changes them as you do (e.g. editing ID3 tags in mp3 files, adding folder.jpg album art file, updating XBMC .nfo file, etc.). Serviio only checks for new additions/updates in folders that have this feature enabled (see orange box).
