Colonoscopy biopsies?

Will a doctor take a biopsy during a colonoscopy no matter what?
According to my mom, the doctor said he didn't see anything too abnormal, but he took 3+ biopsies.
My primary care doctor said they wouldn't take biopsies unless there was something clearly wrong, which obviously makes me nervous.
What are the biopsies for?
What can they indicate, like, what can the results diagnose?
