What are the batteries underneath the battery for?

I'm talking about the two silver circular batteries that sit underneath the actual rechargeable battery. I included a photo.

I'm dealing with a controller that suffered water damage but would power on when it was plugged in. I wanted to open it up and see if I could just clean it out to get the battery charging but if not planned to replace the battery. Cleaned it up, put it back together and now it wouldn't turn on even when plugged in. Now that I replaced the battery and the battery contacts, it still does not power on. I did notice discoloration (burn marks?) on one of the circular batteries underneath. Short of the actual board being bad this is the only thing I could think of but I'm not sure exactly what their function are and if could cause this issue.

Those two marked components are magnets. They are used to mount and properly orient the controller to the charging dock. If you want or need to remove them, take a marker and draw a mark on each of the indicating up. They are polarized. If a marker is not used before they are removed, you can still figure out how they are oriented by loosely placing on the controller as it is sitting on the charging dock. They will flip and turn to orient themselves to the magnets located inside the docking port.
