Using the source (/usr/src/contrib/bind9/bin/named/query.c) suggests:
level, "query: %s %s %s %s%s%s", namebuf,
typename, WANTRECURSION(client) ? "+" : "-",
(client->signer != NULL) ? "S": "",
(client->opt != NULL) ? "E" : "");
AAAA refers to an IPv6 address lookup, similar to an IPv4 "A"
lookup. "+" or "-" indicates whether the client requested recursion,
and perhaps suggests whether it infers whether it should be talking
to a nameserver which is authoritative for a given zone. "S" would
indicate the response was cryptographically signed using TSIG or
whatever BIND's nickname for PKI is, and "E" seems to indicate
whether one of the following two options is set:
* This option is deprecated since we now only consider nibbles.
#define DNS_BYADDROPT_IPV6NIBBLE 0x0001
#define DNS_BYADDROPT_IPV6INT 0x0002
