Does it mean the position of the amino acid in the protein sequence, or something else?

For example, I came across the phrase "S 368 phosphoryation" where S is the modified residue and 368 is the modified residue position. What does it all mean?

You are correct, the 368 stands for the position of the amino acid in the protein's sequence - this particular serine is the 368th residue in the protein counting from the amino-terminal end.
