What is M73 Q17 S43 g-code command?

I know that M73 P19 means "Set completion progress to 19%", and I suspect that M73 R42 means "Set remaining time to 42 minutes", but what is M73 Q17 S43? I can't find description of such syntax.

(The command is seen in .gcode files produced by PrusaSlicer)

Not 100% certain but I think one set is for when the printer is in normal mode and the second set are used when the printer is in Stealth mode. As In R=Regular and S=Stealth

@neophyl Yeah, I can confirm this. I have looked inside MK3S firmware and have found this:
case 73: //M73 show percent done and time remaining
if(code_seen('P')) print_percent_done_normal = code_value();
if(code_seen('R')) print_time_remaining_normal = code_value();
if(code_seen('Q')) print_percent_done_silent = code_value();
if(code_seen('S')) print_time_remaining_silent = code_value();
{
const char* _msg_mode_done_remain = _N("%S MODE: Percent done: %d; print time remaining in mins: %d\n");
printf_P(_msg_mode_done_remain, _N("NORMAL"), int(print_percent_done_normal), print_time_remaining_normal);
printf_P(_msg_mode_done_remain, _N("SILENT"), int(print_percent_done_silent), print_time_remaining_silent);
}
break;

Thanks for the idea.
