F = indicates that the records are fixed length.
V = indicates that the records are variable length.
B = indicates that the records are blocked.
A = indicates that the records contain ISO/ANSI device control characters.
S = indicates that a record can span more than one block.

See the z/OS V1R7.0 MVS JCL Reference


There is no such concept of FB or FBA in VSAM. VSAM records are either of a fixed length or of a variable length.
