Is that drift information put into db by hand relying on some ticket/request from anyone observing the drift on the waterfalls?

Yes, this is a manual operation.

And some satellites where the LO is, lets say not so good, even reoccurring action.

According to your first question @sp6hfe - it’s related to the transmitter frequency in KRAKsat case :).
