A semi-colon is typically used in a CNC machine or basic address to indicate a line to be ignored. This use of the semicolon can vary from machine to machine, so a manual should be consulted first. However, it can also be used to denote the end of a program block, as the previous answer here as indicated.

When used in this capacity, it is typically only a representation of said end-of-block. There is usually another character used in the code for this purpose. That said, the semi-colon isn’t the only character that can be used in this capacity. The asterisk () and the dollar sign ($) have been used in this capacity. It all depends on what systems are being used to write the CNC coding.
