It is a flag file; you create it, e.g.:
and then reboot the system.
The system initialization scripts check for it and will relabel the
filesystem if the file exists, then delete it. system-config-
securitylevel creates it upon significant changes to the SELinux
configuration, e.g. enabling/disabling SELinux, switching from targeted
to strict policy, etc.
