For a description of any field, you can refer to the SMBIOS
specification directly:

Straight from the spec:

"Identifies when the Memory Device is one of a set
of Memory Devices that must be populated with all
devices of the same type and size, and the set to
which this device belongs"

Dmidecode will report "None" if the device is not part of such a set,
and "Unknown" if the information is not provided.
