I have the same thing. The middle parts of the long value are
different, but otherwise all my values are identical to yours.
I think you skipped over an entry, though: Right before the one
that ends with "545" is one that ends with "544".

The letter "S" probably stands for something. Not literally
"Something", but something. :) No idea what...

Since this is under "Current User", they all apply to you -- they
are not different users. My guess is that they are different
groups that *could* exist. Whatever they are, they don't look
at all interesting.
