I assume you are talking about the Material Provision Indicator in the BOM Item details,

Material provided by a vendor: L

This is basically applicable in Subcontracting scenario. If the Header material in the BOM is defined with Special Procurement key "30" in the material master MRP2 view and if some of the component is provided by the vendor himself but this component needs to be indicated in the Purchase Order, then set Indicator "L".

What this means is when a Subcontract PO is created for the header material, there are no dependent requirements created for this component in the BOM, whereas for other components dependent requirements are created.

Material provided by Customer: K

To my knowledge this is functionality is not yet Implemented by SAP.
