This is a general question and so the general answer is "yes, re-entry permit can be sought multiple times." Will it be approved? That is specific to a certain filing - why is it sought? how often? does it appear candidate is likely to be considered abandoning residency? Such other numerous questions are consider before filing.

Initial re-entry permits are valid for two years. Reentry permits cannot be extended. If your permit expires,
you’ll need to apply for a new one.For most reentry permit holders, their first and second reentry permits will be valid for two years. However, subsequent reentry permits may be valid for one year only.

Potentially, yes. Most are approved for 2 years, although it is up to uscis discretion to approve for shorter period. At expiration, you can apply for another one.
