It's for coins with + grading, MS64+ for example.

For coins assigned the + designation in the numerical grade. Eg. A coin may be assigned MS65+ , may not quite be strong enough to be considered a 66, but shows strength above a 65. Eye appeal, luster, marks are all the usual contributors in this.

I thought that MIGHT be what it meant but it isn't spelled out anywhere.. I thought the * rating with NGC usually applied to PL or attractively toned coins that have some extra eye appeal.

But it is! From the site:

Plus Grades
"Plus Grades" exhibit exceptional eye appeal for the grade and constitute the top 30% of the coins in the grade.

Only XF-45 through MS/PR-68 are eligible for Plus grades. Numerically, this includes 45, 50, 53, 55, 58, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, & 68.

NGC grading has both star and a plus.
From NGC:
NGC assigns a + to coins at the high end of their assigned grade, approaching the quality requirements for the next grade.
NGC assigns its trademarked Star (#9733;) Designation to coins with exceptional eye appeal for their assigned grade.
