The default setting here is «2», which means that all articles are possible. Then activate the «Randomly display featured products», so that a rotation of all articles is possible.

If you would like to limit the rotation to one article category, you can find the «Category ID» of the corresponding category under «Categories», «Categories» under «ID».
