When are these "Hit the daily reputation cap on X days" badges assigned? Are they assigned when somebody's reputation always grown in X days, or something else?

The days don't have to be consecutive. –  ChrisF Jun 28 '10 at 12:43
    
I'm not sure whether meta.stackexchange.com/questions/52785/… or meta.stackexchange.com/questions/32077/… answers your question. Or if the concept of the badge itself is confusing you, check out the original request here: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/7020/… –  Grace Note Jun 28 '10 at 12:55

They are awarded when your daily reputation exceeds 200 points on 50/150 days. If you visit http://stackoverflow.com/reputation and scroll all the way to the bottom, you'll see the last two lines look like this:

rep cap was reached on x days
rep cap was exceeded on y days

I remember reading an answer from Jeff saying the second number applies to those badges.

Yes, it is the second number that applies. Check out the comments here for the official statement. –  Grace Note Jun 28 '10 at 13:12
    
@Grace: indeed, and this answer from Jeff explains it too. –  Andy E Jun 28 '10 at 13:15
