The EncodingStats class (as the name suggests) is used for encoding the statistics (metadata) of rows and tombstones when serialising data.

The statistics are used for optimising the storage of rows on disk so it applies to SSTables.

In any case, none of these are really relevant to an app developer or DB admin so perhaps if you tell me what problem you are trying to solve, I'd be able to give a better response. Cheers!
