I would like to ask one question regarding the meaning of the word additional.

Does the word additional carry on the connotation of optional?

Like for example if I write "additional settings" in a manual, does that implies those settings can be skipped?


No, it doesn't carry any such connotations. It means simply "ones that haven't been mentioned/discussed yet."
