It’s not clearly marked anywhere, so for now it’s speculation on the images, but the four drivetrains still have a small scale below the idle that’s also marked. So there will likely be a reverse range or switch.
Auto push/TOGA is done in different ways at different levels, so I don’t blame them for the lack of buttons on the push rods. This also ensures that the spoiler/power/rpm/mix levers are easy to replace. You also have at least 10 customizable buttons to assign A/T or TOGA to.
This “button” looks like an alarm, not a button. It just indicates that your landing lights are likely to be on. If you want to hook up your lights, you obviously have 10 customizable buttons under the push rods.
