No doubt someone else will be able to help you more, but take a look at option
`mouse-buffer-menu-mode-mult' (whose doc string is not very good, IMHO).
Setting it to 1 or 0 should apparently do what you want.

FWIW - `mouse-buffer-menu' also uses variable `mouse-buffer-menu-mode-groups'.
According to the (nearly incomprehensible) doc string for
`mouse-buffer-menu-mode-mult' you should not need to modify
`mouse-buffer-menu-mode-groups'.  But you might try doing so anyway just to see
what happens. ;-)  Apparently things are meant to be magic, which is too often
just another word for user-unfriendly. ;-)
