For Cherry MX switches, the sticker mod is placing a special-purpose decal between top and bottom housings. The sticker closes the gap between parts and reduces key wobble a tiny amount.
Several clones of Cherry MX have a tighter fit from the start, obviating any perceived need for this mod on those. This mod is not known for any other type of keyboard switch.
