Please specify what switch platform you are using.

Normally with show platform commands, they are not documented because they're used for low-level troubleshooting.

Can you elaborate on what problem are you trying to solve by looking at these commands?

RxBufferDropDestIndexCount is a global counter (for all the ports in the asic) of various frames that were dropped on ingress. This could be due to various reasons like frames received on an STP blocked port, frames that violate port-security and many more such cases.

So this is typically normal to see on a switch and nothing to worry about unless you suspect a problem with dropped traffic.
