The # sign represents numeric fields which can be used in stats to calculate an aggregate value whereas the a symbol represents alphanumeric and cannot have its values calculated by a stats command

Example:

If you have a numeric field called duration, you can do this

| stats avg(duration)

If its alphanumeric, you will not get a value returned from stats
