mdbox_rotate_interval is useful only if you want smaller incremental backups (so files that are backed up no longer change unless messages are deleted). Its default is 0 (I just fixed example-config, which showed it as 1day).
I don't really know about mdbox_rotate_size. It would be nice if someone were to test different values over longer period and report how it affects disk IO.
