I agree with the above. In recent Samsung models, the control adjusts the hue of the skin tone color checker patterns. In earlier plasma models (I think a Samsung D7000 and similar) it controls the saturation of the skin tone patterns.
So run a series of skin tone color checker patterns, and look at a graph that shows delta Hue in which direction (one direction toward yellow, other direction toward magenta). If most of the patches are leaning toward yellow, use the skin tone control to shift them toward magenta or vice versa. The control has no impact on normal primary/secondary saturation sweeps.

I have been using this control for a while when necessary, but it’s not always necessary; sometimes the overall delta Hue readings are already evenly distributed toward yellow or magenta.
