VIN Decoding meaning: Dispatch Protection Pack & Battery Master Swirch?

I ran a VIN decoder on my car, and I understand most of the options except these two.

S818A BATTERIEHAUPTSCHALTER Battery master switch
S925A VERSANDSCHUTZPAKET Dispatch protection pack

Can someone tell me what these are?

Not exactly sure, but those items are included on every car that is delivered from Germany to the U.S. Those items are removed either at the port of delivery or at the dealer.
