Default what is the purpose of the "M" terminal on a starter motor solenoid?

this is pertinent to a 1998 Honda Civix LX 1.6L D16Y7 engine w/ a/t (i've already figured out the "B" terminal is from the battery B+ terminal, and the "S" terminal is from the ignition switch)tia

The starter "m"otor gets power through the solenoid but I'm only guessing cause nothing else make sense.

there are two coils of windings inside the starter solenoid. one coil controls the engagement and disengagement of the starter drive from the flywheel and the other controls the flow of current to the starter motor.The circuit that controls the flow of current to the starter motor is the "M" terminal. the other terminals are for the starter drive engagement through the ignition switch and the battery.hope that helps
