    S1 switch wiring looks like this.

    Fender has used several versions of "S1" switching over the years since The STRAT of 1980.

    As far as "How do I use Delta Tone?" it works the same as a normal Strat tone control operationally.
    It just has a bit more range, so use your ears and adjust to taste.
    Basically a simplified variation of the TBX tone control.

    Whatever your switch is doing is separate from the basic Delta Tone control.

    Yes, this is what it does. At 10 the pot is open circuit. As the tone cap can't ground it is rendered inoperable (same as not there). The difference between 9 & 10 ( or unloaded) isn't large, but I hear it. Cheers
