why does it go to 1.8 in S mode or in automatic modes WITH flash?

In S mode it has no choice. You set a fast shutter and the light is needed, it will go to 1.8 whether or not it would prefer to stay above it.

In flash mode - I have no idea. Automatic modes tend to be a bit of a black art, and the manufacturer is not sharing the algorithms they use to decide.
