+1 going from memory, they are a set of buttons on their own in front and slightly above the larger seat up/down/tilt bar (again, on the comfort seats)

On the 550 active side bolsters were optional on M-Sport cars as well (only on LCI cars and rarer than night vision, never seen one with them personally, but they are out there - somewhere).
If your car came with active side bolsters there would be a button below the seat heating on the console to turn them on/off, also the adjusters are 2 little round buttons on the side of the seat.
