Some questions about some objects

I want to recreate some Reaktorpatches in Max and I am trying to understand the architecture behind a Krell ensemble I found in the user library

1) what does <sil> mean? Is that a constant input?

2) The Sine FM object has 3 inputs: pitch, frequency, and amplitude. What is the difference between pitch and frequency? Aren't they cancelling each other out?

Probably I will have more questions tomorrow but these are the first thongs that I need to know to get started.

    Ok, so I already understand that <sil> is an inlet for data and the number 1 denominates the port. Is there a significance to which port the inlet uses?

    Then: I see a button object with a toggle function. When I click off in the interface and then return to edit mode, it still shows the button as on. Is that normal?

    linear in pitch and linear in frequency have an exponential/logarithmic relationship with each other. so they are controlling the same thing only scaled differently
