I wonder what these things mean.

  • Why is it telling me the start and end base of a read?
  • Why does it tell me the mapping quality of the only start-base, not end-base?

The mapping quality is for the entire read and not just a particular base. mpileup can also output the mapping qualities of the read covering each base with the -s option and the base positions with the -O option. The start and end positions are special cases, where if coverage of a particular base is mostly at the start or at the end, that could potentially imply some bias.
