Maximum Material Boundary Condition Interpretation
Can someone explain the implication of the MMB modifier on datum C for the hole position? I'm trying to understand what is restricted or gained by using the MMB vs not. I've seen examples with holes/pins, but not with a center plane setup. Size tolerance: +/- .005.

In this example as datum C diverges from MMB size (largest to smallest) the referenced part feature (2X holes) are allowed to shift more left or right.

Alternatively, the hole feature position is allowed more left and right tolerance variability as the datum feature C decreases in size from MMB toward LMB.

Think of the datum simulator "C" as a fixed boundary of that being two vertical planes at a separation of nominal size + tolerance + geometric tolerance and the as-built part can shift within (left and right with respect the the drawing view given) depending of datum "C" divergence from MMB size.

thus:

( 2.000 + unstated tolerance for MMC) + .010 = separation = virtual condition of datum feature "C".
