What is the name for an object that cannot be added to (for example, a circle can only have 360 degrees; any more degrees and it is no longer merely a circle)?

I don't think there is a name for this concept.

In your example, a circle doesn't "have" 360 degrees. The measure of a central angle that encompasses the entire circle is 360 degrees, but we can talk about angles of more than 360 degrees.
