Default Question about the power seats

On the SSEi there are 9 switches on the console for the power seats. I know what the top six do, but I'm wondering what do the bottom 3 switches do. This has been bugging me for a long time so I am hoping somebody has an answer. Please tell me what the last three buttons at the bottom do. Here is a picture for emphasis:

Those three buttons are to inflate small bladders ( similar to football bladders that act to give support for your lower back. They operate by a small air pump that creates air pressure and is distributed to one of the three bladders by a controller that sends the air to the one you direct it to by the switch. The pump is about the size and shape of a beer can and is generally found under the passenger seat. I had my pump go bad a few years back and when I checked there was only one dealer in the nation that had one in stock and the wanted $100 or $150 for it. Too rich for my blood so I bought a small bulb pump used to inflate the bladder in football helmets from the local sporting goods store and ran a piece of vacuum hose to the controller. Now what I do is push the button for the bladder I want to inflate and pump the bulb pump a few times until I feel the firmness I desire. The pump is very small and I just leave it lay on the floor in front of the passenger seat.
