There should be about 0.5 MM (0.020") float of the rotor, controlled by the wave springs between the riveted bushings holding it to the carrier. If the wave springs have broken and come out, then the rotor will rattle.
The two screws holding the rotor carrier to the axle hub have no bearing on the rotor float or looseness, as they are only there to retain the carrier when the wheel is removed. The clamping pressure between the wheel and hub when the wheel lug nuts are tightened is what resists the braking force.
