They call customer assistance and vw recovery (if you have the phone bluetoothed)

I tried to reprogram them for calling home but couldn't. I've juts read this info here so maybe worth another look. I'll let you know if it works.

I'm Guessing your in a Trendline or Highline. If you have the premium Bluetooth and multi fuction wheel you will probably never use the top one with a star. If you have connected your phone via bluetooth then you can answer / hangup the phone using it. the other 2 as said before direct to VW I understand again only if you've connected your phone via bluetooth.
Hope this helps.

I have these buttons but they are redundant ( I presume ) because we have a Kenwood head unit.

So can we replace them with something useful like a clock?

I have them too. I was told you hold one for like 10 seconds and it calls Vw recovery service or something.

I presume that only works with VW OEM Bluetooth Radio whereas I have Kenwood.

The star button switches on voice command hands free phone if factory Bluetooth is installed. It's pretty good. You just press the button and tell it the number to call.
