They only become important when the renderer is changed to something else.

Do you have an idea how to improve UX?

Not really. Haven't thought about it actually. I was just discovering the different new options and got puzzled by this behavior.
Offer the user the possibility to write in a textbox means that entered value should be kept and work somewhere. Otherwise, the textbox should be read-only, imho. People can get lost with that.
What about having these variables set the values in Style tab (2.5d renderer) and have them overwritten by what the user can enter in the corresponding fields when style tab is active?
