There's some documentation on the Wiki:

Not quite; despite the names, version-0 and versionfix-n revisions
behave almost exactly as patch-n revisions.  Sealing is used to express
the intent "work on this version is essentially finished, and few (if
any) additional commits will be made".  To commit (or tag) to a version
which has been sealed, you need to supply the --fix ("I know this
version has been sealed, but this change fixes something important
enough for it to go in anyway") option.

Versions which have been sealed don't show up by default when using
abrowse or rbrowse, so one use for sealing is to to hide obsolete
versions in an arch repository.
