Mystery button in share advanced search

I'm confused about something, and perhaps this is just a lesson in minding one's own business. However, I'd kind of like to learn just as a matter of principle.

I started a port of the "Advanced Search for Share" extension for my 3.3 nightly build shapshot. This adds a search panel to the document library page so you can search by metadata. My patch is here. However, the search button doesn't work, and in trying to track down why, I can't find:

  1. any code anywhere that puts a search button on the page.

  2. code that specifies an action for when the button is pressed

  3. a corresponding <button/> element when I "view page source"

all I see in the page source is an empty, named <div/>. No fields, no button, no nothing.

So where do these things come from?

Sorry for the dumb question.
