(1) Summary, third sentence. Suggest rewording as “An error occurs when no value appears more than once”.
(2) Returns. Suggest delete “Number 1, Number 2, …, Number 255”. Also perhaps insert “list of” before “arguments”.
(3) Arguments, 1st bullet. This statement is a bit complex and I do not understand it fully. I am happy that if you write =MODE(“fred”) then you get an error 504. What is the other condition that you are trying to capture? I tried =MODE(1,1,A21) when A21 held a text string and no error was generated (the result was 1, which presumably means that A21 was simply ignored).
(4) Arguments, 2nd bullet. Should the text “name/array/reference to a” be deleted? Also, please check how logical values are handled; I think they might be given the value 0 or 1 as appropriate.
(5) Arguments, 3rd bullet. Suggest change to “If a cell contains 0 then the function includes it.”
(6) Examples, 2nd example. In the Description, the word “hence” is redundant. The text “one of them” is also redundant.
