According to the ContentVersion documentation under SharingPrivacy, it mentions:

Controls sharing privacy for a file. Only administrators and file owners with Collaborator access to the file can modify this field. Default is Visible to Anyone With Record Access. When set to Private on Records, the file is private on records but can be shared selectively with others.

But when I query a sample record, I see "N" as the values.

Is there a list of all the acceptable values, and what they actual mean / map to?

    The accepted answer below applies for ContentVersion and ContentDocument. Both objects have the same gap in the documentation. Jan 4, 2022 at 22:35

You can utilize workbench to view the details of the field. It's a picklist field with the values as below.

label: Visible to Anyone With Record Access

value: N

label: Private on Records

value: P

    This is gold - didn't realize I could use Workbench in that capacity. Thank you! May 13, 2019 at 13:40
