If you create a feature and assign an appearance to that feature (different from the appearance assigned to the whole item), checking the 'propagate visual properties' box will give the new appearance to the mirrored feature whereas un-checking it will give the original appearance.

Geometry pattern will mirror the finished feature as it is created. Otherwise a the feature is re-created in the new location using mirrored instructions (see attached images)
