Counter variables determine what kind of special item will appear at the start of the next level, according to specific player actions. When a counter reaches a certain threshold (from a table in ROM), the corresponding item code is loaded in $40B and the counter is reset to 0. If more than one counter reach their threshold, the lowest in the list has priority.
