Yes. Any flag not part of the set after the slash is ignored.

I like S/SA, but then I don't care if someone creates state with SYN+FIN
or SYN+RST, and I see no harm in SYN+PSH or SYN+URG at all. And I don't
care whether anyone successfully fingerprints my filter.
If you're curious, tcpdump your connections for a while and see what
flags come with SYN on legitimate connections...
