2011 Camaro ss L99

Hey,
I have been trying to find out the answer to this question but am still unsure.
I know the 2011 automatic has buttons on the rear of the steering wheel to manually shift with. Looking from the front of the steering wheel there are two parts with a + and -. My question is can pressing the part with the + and the - change the gear or do I have to press the buttons at the rear of the steering wheel. Of course If I had my car, right now
I would try it myself!
Thanks
Below is a photo of my steering wheel which is different but I think the automatic manual parts are the same as stock.

I found this photo showing the buttons. I can also see the parts that are marked with a plus and a minus.

I drove a 2015 ss and I remember tapping the parts with the +and -

Buttons on the rear only. The marked areas are just for identification only.

Thank you for confirming. I see the Hurst paddle shifters are discontinued but Vitesse Motorsports make some.

That is because 2013+ years have actual paddles and not those stupid buttons.
