Well, from "silent install" and ".exe" it's possible to guess you're
talking about Windows and Git for Windows.  Both of its available
versions (the latest "legacy" release, 1.9.5 and the new 2.x.x) are
packaged using Inno Setup and hence tricks the installers generated by
that product apply:
1) The installer is able to run in a "simulated" mode in which it allows
   the user to make the necessary choices in the installer's UI and
   save them in an INI-formatted file which can later be used for
   "preceeding" the installation.  That's the "/SAVEINF=name"
   and "/LOADINF=name" command-line options.
2) It supports the "/SILENT" and "/VERYSILENT" command-line options.

You can read about this stuff in [1].

Not sure by which conventions "/S" has some stanzardized meaning.
