Options for starting "*.sh" programs

In the '/usr/local/etc/rc.d' directory, I have discovered that I have
several options available with the various programs listed there.

For instance, take the samba.sh program. It lists these options:

[fast|force|one](start stop restart rcvar status poll}

I understand the obvious start, stop, restart, rcvar and status. However,
what do the fast, force, one and poll options do?

I cannot seem to find anything in the manual regarding this? No doubt, I
am looking in the wrong place.
