What do the fields similar to “link#2” in the netstat -rn output signify?

It means the destination is to your link#2 (see the interface column).
Link#1 is usually localhost. It means you’re directly connected to the
destination host / network. For ethernet you’ll probably also see a ‘C’
in the flags which means it’s a ‘cloneable’ route: i.e. you’ll have to
arp to get the link level address of the final destination.
