Virtual thumbsticks on both sides of the screen control movement and viewing, while set buttons cover the standard FPS controls (shooting, reloading, switching weapons, etc).

Are they buttons which you can put (set) anywhere on the screen? Or maybe buttons which are grouped (in a set) in some way? Or are they something else?

From this context, I think "set" means more like established, fixed, or unchangeable. Their functions are already "set" (as in stone) and cannot be customized.
