Do you have an example file you could share? Have you searched the documentation for an explanation?

When you download the installer, the installer_input.txt file is already formatted, you just need to fill it out appropriately for your setup. Here's R2022b's file:
##################################################################
##
## Use this file to specify parameters required by the installer at runtime.
##
## Instructions for using this file.
##
## 1. Create a copy of this template file and fill in the required
## information.
##
## 2. Uncomment only those lines that start with a single '#'
## and set the desired values. All allowed values for the
## parameters are defined in the comments section for each
## parameter.
##
## 3. Launch the installer from the command line, using the -inputFile option
## to specify the name of your installer initialization file.
##
## (Windows) setup.exe -inputFile <file_name>
## (Linux/macOS) install -inputFile <file_name>
##
##################################################################
##
##
## SPECIFY INSTALLATION FOLDER
##
## Example:
## (Windows) destinationFolder=C:\Program Files\MATLAB\RXXXX
## (Linux) destinationFolder=/usr/local/RXXXX
## (macOS) destinationFolder=/Applications
##
## Set the desired value for destinationFolder and
## uncomment the line.
# destinationFolder=
##
## SPECIFY FILE INSTALLATION KEY
##
## Example: fileInstallationKey=xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx.....
##
## Set the desired value for fileInstallationKey and
## uncomment the line.
##
# fileInstallationKey=
##
## ACCEPT LICENSE AGREEMENT
##
## You must agree to the license agreement to install MathWorks products.
## The license agreement can be found in the license_agreement.txt file at the
## root level of the installation DVD.
##
## Example: agreeToLicense=yes
##
## Set agreeToLicense value to yes or no and
## uncomment the line.
# agreeToLicense=
##
## SPECIFY OUTPUT LOG
##
## Specify full path of file into which you want the results of the
## installation to be recorded.
##
## Example:
## (Windows) outputFile=C:\TEMP\mathworks_<user_name>.log
## (Linux/macOS) outputFile=/tmp/mathworks_<user_name>.log
##
## Set the desired value for outputFile and
## uncomment the line.
# outputFile=
##
## Enable Login Named User licensing
##
## Set to Yes to enable use of a Login Named User license for all users of this MATLAB installation
## Users must log in to their MathWorks Account when MATLAB starts.
##
## Example: enableLNU=yes
##
## NOTE: This flag is valid in silent installations only.
# enableLNU=yes
##
## IMPROVE MATLAB
##
## Improve MATLAB by sending user experience information to MathWorks.
## Your participation ensures that you are represented and helps us design
## better products. You can opt in or out of this service either during
## installation or by going to MATLAB preferences.

########## Begin: Options for Network License Types #########
##
## SPECIFY PATH TO LICENSE FILE (Required for network license types only)
##
## This value is required when installing as a Network End-User
## Example:
## (Windows) licensePath=C:\TEMP\license.dat
## (Linux) licensePath=/tmp/license.dat
## Set the desired value for licensePath and
## uncomment the line.
# licensePath=
########## End: Options for Network License Types #########
################# Begin - Windows Only Options ################
##
## CHOOSE TO SET FILE ASSOCIATIONS
##
## Set to true if you want the installer to associate file types used by MathWorks
## products to this version of MATLAB, or false if you do not want the installer to
## associate MathWorks file types with this version of MATLAB.
##
## Default value is true.
##
## Set setFileAssoc value to true or false and
## uncomment the line.
# setFileAssoc=true
##
## CHOOSE TO CREATE WINDOWS DESKTOP SHORTCUT
##
## Set to true if you would like the installer to create a desktop shortcut icon
## when MATLAB is installed or false if you don't want the shortcut created.
##
## Default value is false.
##
## Set desktopShortcut value to true or false and
## uncomment the line.
# desktopShortcut=false
## CHOOSE TO ADD SHORTCUT TO WINDOWS START MENU
##
## Set to true if you would like the installer to create a Start Menu shortcut
## icon when MATLAB is installed or false if you don't want the shortcut created.
##
## Default value is true.
##
## Set startMenuShortcut value to true or false and
## uncomment the line.
# startMenuShortcut=true
## CREATE a MATLAB Startup Accelerator task
##
## The MATLAB Startup Accelerator installer creates a
## system task to preload MATLAB into the system's cache
## for faster startup.
##
## NOTE: By default, a MATLAB Startup Accelerator task will
## automatically be created.
##
## If you want a MATLAB Startup Accelerator task to be created,
## do not edit this section.
##
## Set createAccelTask value to false if you do not want to
## create an Accelerator task and uncomment the line.
# createAccelTask=true
################ End - Windows Only Options ################
## SPECIFY PRODUCTS YOU WANT TO INSTALL
##
## By default, the installer installs all the products and
## documentation for which you are licensed. Products you are not licensed for
## are not installed, even if they are listed here.
##
## Note:
## 1. To automatically install all your licensed products, do not edit
## any lines in this section.
##
## 2. To install a specific product or a subset of products for
## which you are licensed, uncomment the line for the product(s) you want
## to install.

This answer is not quite applicable. Installing add-ons silently is different from installing MATLAB silently. The instructions for doing so state:
cd DRIVE:\<MATLAB_PATH>\bin\win64
SupportSoftwareInstaller.exe -downloadfolder <path_to_download_folder> -inputfile <path_to_input_file>\ssi_input.txt
I am also trying to figure out the syntax of this "ssi_input.txt" or where to find an example. I assume it is not quite the same as "installer_input.txt". Those same instructions also only mention that "The input file is used to specify the support packages that are to be installed."

The ssi_input.txt will be created for you automatically.
You have to download the support software downloader from here:
In this downloader you select your Matlab version and the support package(s) you want to install and then it will create the folder containing the Add-Ons and the ssi_input.txt.
