Although these options are shown for superserver and not for classic
server, the truth is actually exactly opposite. Superserver ignores all
the above switches and implies: multi-client + multi-thread +
standalone. Contrary, classic server is single-client and
single-threaded by default.

Ability to listen the socket instead of [x]inetd and spawn child server
processes or threads (they're considered running in a not standalone mode).

Specifies maximum number of clients to serve for the standalone mode:
-m <number>

In theory, it should switch between a pool of working threads and
dedicated thread/process per client connection. But as fb_inet_server on
POSIX is built without threading support, I think this switch cannot
work properly.
