The two buttons are part of the touchpad, and are handled by the
synaptics driver (or ps2 driver if you prefer that), but they don't
have any pressure sensitive sensors, they are physical buttons, they
pass the click when the button makes the actual click. The touchpad
itself is a virtual button, it has a pressure sensitive sensor and the
and actual switch that is activated (its electrostatic as opposed to
mechanical), which is what makes it possible to play with the
sensitivity of the touchpad itself.
Its similar to a real mouse in that respect where you can play with the
sensitivity of the movement but not of the buttons.
