Clearly, they are not for different meanings as some lemmas just have 3 for example.

abnuo ab-nuo, ui, uiturus, 3. migom odbiti, uskratiti, odricati
aboleo ab-oleo, evi, itum, 2. uništiti, zatrti, istrijebiti
abolesco ab-olesco, evi, –, 3. nestati; iščeznuti
abominor ab-ominor, 1. željeti da prođe zlo znamenje; ne željeti; proklinjati

The reply I got:

It's conjugation patterns, such as:
Gramatika latinskog jezika – Wikipedija

abomināre - I
abolēre - II
ābnuĕre - III

Right.  Latin has 4 verb conjugations, based on the stem vowel:  a, as in portare, is #1;  long ē, as in monēre, is #2; short ě, as in ducěre, is #3;  and i, as in audire, is #4.  Feel free to ask more questions.
