I think they're actuated by the AOA.

From their site:

Press Release – Just Aircraft New “Superstol”
Just Aircraft has completed design and testing of a new “Slatted wing” and compatible “Shock Absorber Landing Gear”. The results exceeded expectations!

“This newly completed “Superstol” with a high lift wing and long strut air shock landing gear is the ultimate future bushplane. Fowler flaps and automatic leading edge slats increase wing cord and provide exceptional STOL performance while maintaining the trailerable folding wing.

• At least 10% faster cruise speed
• At least 10% slower stall speed
• Reduced landing distance by 50%"
