casting fillet radii

Reading between the lines, I can imagine castings that require machining to provide finished components. For reasons of quality and economics, there are tolerances on the size of the castings (they cannot be smaller than the finished item, the "excess" on the casting must be sufficient to ensure there are not hollows or pitting on the surface of the part machined to final dimensions, and the casting must not have so much excess that it would take a long time to machine it down to final dimensions (plus wear of tools).

However, no tolerance is specified on the radius of curvature at angles on the casting.

Pure guesswork.
