I facilitate a weekly webinar with 75-100 completely inept students. They need to have their hands held all the time and cannot have any extraneous buttons in their screen, otherwise they get distracted. I had gotten my webinar account down to no buttons, I was thrilled! I wake up this morning to run a test and find a new Closed Captions button and a settings button that I cannot remove!! WTH??
While it may seem odd the setting for closed captioning is under meeting settings. If you go under the meeting settings you can turn off closed captioning and that button should go away. https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/4409683389709
As far as the gear icon it probably appeared because of the closed captioning being enabled and will hopefully disappear upon disabling the closed captioning.
Have you logged out of the App and back in after making the adjustments? Sometimes if you change settings this is required for them to take effect.
