A newer stepping brings changes to the silicon that can have various effects.
Think of them as revisions.

In the case of Phenom I, the changes were pretty significant
Going from B2 -> B3 brought:
-Better overclocking capability. 3Ghz was no longer a barrier with B3.
-Fixed TLB bug
-Lower power consumption allowed higher clocked models for the same TDP

In the case of Phenom II, going from C2 -> C3 brought:
-Better overclocking capability
-Improved memory controller
-Better power consumption

In simple terms it is mostly functional improvements and/or performance or manufacturing improvements as well.
