Is this an i3 related question? There are no window control buttons in i3.

Yes, its about how to remove them in i3 (they are part of gtk3 menu). I think its about gtk3 config, but cant figure what to do. (In gnome i can edit this buttons layout via dconf-editor). Sorry for poor english.

gtk-decoration-layout = appmenu:close

2. Make sure the first line of the file is:
