Thank you for this useful explanation. I should have read the whole
thread, but I'm lazy.

I'm old school and use bibtex, and, before I adopted latexmk as a
solution, I remember setting org-latex-pdf-process to run multiple
times (5+) to cope with my setup of multiple bib files and multiple
layers of cross-referencing and citing within the bib files. It didn't
always work so I understand fully the motive behind using latexmk. 

Thanks again - and to others for explaining the thinking.

Best wishes, Colin.
