Is it true the webapp controls the allowance of the VERBS if the webservice accepts it then so does Tomcat or is there
a setting to allow say PUT,GET,POST, DELETE   and what about OPTIONS or the other obscure verbs?

Not sure I'm following you but if your webapp doesn't recognize the verb then it's not going to do anything so it will end there.

My question was really on a Tomcat 7.x or greater version server by default capable of handling PUT,DELETE, HEAD, OPTIONS and all the typical RESTFUL Verbs or is this fully controlled by what Spring MVC Rest controller specifies in each webapp?

Any Spring MVC controller I would  write e.g:
within a Conrtoller  class:
  @RequestMapping(method = RequestMethod.DELETE, value = "/{gameId}")
    ResponseEntity<Void> destroyGame(@PathVariable Long gameId) throws GameDoesNotExistException {
        this.gameRepository.remove(gameId);
        return new ResponseEntity<Void>(HttpStatus.OK);
    }
I mean to ask by default are these HTTP verbs enabled   or should I say not disable in versions 7.x and above?

I would have appreciated a bit of history like when in the history of Tomcat these verbs were enabled by default was that always the case?
I know Trace has to be enabled right? Also taking it another step if Mod_JK or  mod_proxy were used to go through an HTTPD apache server would those HTTP verbs  also be enabled by default Or are there additional settings needed on the Apache HTTPD server???
