Configure Gnome by text files (Debian 10)

I am using Salt stack to keep all (15+) of my system configurations in sync. I have recently switched to using Debian 10. It turns out that its Gnome has disabled the minimize and maximize buttons, so I need to make some modifications to its configuration.

Where does Debian store its Gnome configuration files? Is this location relatively stable? Can I count on it being in the “same place”, so that I can automate putting the file there?

Or should I just configure Gnome programmatically, for example, by a shell command?
