My thought it is setup not to utilize the push buttons, is there a simple diagram that shows the different configurations of this panel?

It sounds like it’s been wired to keep the solenoid in the starter energized continuously – which could be used in conjunction with some external switches; but that is certainly not typical or recommended. Is this a new to you machine? Did it work properly before and if so, what changed? There should be a block wiring diagram on the inside cover of the starter. If not, let us know the make/mfg of the starter and maybe someone can pull something up for you.
