The values inserted in the settings dashboard are general and applied to all the categories and/or tags.
The system checks that the total amount of the products of each category and/or tag fulfills the specified limits.

To exclude a category or a tag from the general restrictions, go to WooCommerce category page and enable the option Exclude. On the contrary, if you want to override the global restrictions enable the option Override quantity restrictions and/or Override spend restrictions.
