You are right: the "S" in the skip field means "skip it".
Although you see the column in chirp interface you have to know that, 
may be,  the specific driver for your radio can be incomplete and not 
support it or you can have found a bug ... well ... it happens ;)
Which radio model are you using?

It enables the display of special channels if the radio has some (and 
the driver support them).
I mean special as "different than normal memory" and, typically, radio 
model specific; eg. for the ft817 we support PMS, home frequencies, 
current VFOs and 60m energency channels.
