They indicate more rounding [ɔ̹] and less rounding [ɔ̜], respectively.

There's three possible "half rings" in IPA. The left facing ring, with a hole on the right side is less rounding. The right facing ring is more rounding. The bottom facing ring (which is the most-common) is used to indicate non-syllabic consonants and vowels. This is used for diphthongs in English.

That's an inverted breve below.

You can see when zoomed in that, for instance, the inverted breve thickens in the middle, whereas the half-rings have a consistent thickness.
