Pentax WR Remote O-RC!

I just purchased the Pentax wireless and water resistant remote. I know what the first button does is set-off the shutter on my K-5 II but does anyone know what the other 2 buttons are for ? One has "Fn" on it and the other has a small picture of what looks like a person figure and trees. The manual that this thing came with does not explain anything ? It only says those buttons are for selected models only

Fn - Will do what you assigned your camera FN button to do
Person + Tree : will make your camera focus to what its aimed at.
I could be wrong xD

I believe those other buttons are only for point and shoots.

I got the person + tree to work. It focuses before triggering the shutter, but the 'Fn' button got me puzzled. I don't have an 'Fn' button on my K-5 II, I have an 'Fx ' button. The shake reduction is disabled while I have the camera set to Remote Control.
