A form is displaying fine but save, cancel and back button are not displaying in form

The documentation regarding the InsertForm component is somewhat lacking. To display the inserted forms buttons, use mui/index/render_handle rather than mui/index/render for the <renderUrl> param.

Here's an example that I have recently used.

<!-- component is not required. this form was very similar and benefits from the customer insert-form -->
    <insertForm name="update_contact_address_form_loader" component="Magento_Customer/js/form/components/insert-form">
        <argument name="data" xsi:type="array">
            <item name="config" xsi:type="array">
                <!-- The name of the inserted forms data provider : the first half of the inserted forms provider param -->
                <item name="addressListingProvider" xsi:type="string">ns = example_contacts_addresses_listing, index = example_contacts_addresses_listing</item>
                <!-- parentName (if using modal) -->
                <item name="addressModalProvider" xsi:type="string">${ $.parentName }</item>
            <!-- note the renderUrl is 'render_handle' rather than just 'render' this is required for rendering buttons -->
            <renderUrl path="mui/index/render_handle">
                <!-- The handle name is the same as the layout name. Example: view/adminhtml/layout/example_contacts_addresses_edit.xml -->
                <param name="handle">example_contacts_addresses_edit</param>
                <!-- show buttons from inserted form -->
                <param name="buttons">1</param>
            <toolbarContainer>${ $.parentName }</toolbarContainer>
            <!-- The data provider of the inserted form : the second half of the inserted forms provider param -->
            <externalProvider>${ $.ns }.addresses_form_data_source</externalProvider>
            <!-- The name of the inserted ui component form -->
                <!-- for this particular form, parent_id is a foreign key that references the entity_id of the contact -->
                <link name="parentId">${ $.externalProvider }:data.parent_id</link>
                <link name="parentId">${ $.provider}:data.entity_id</link>

Magento's Customer Module is a helpful resource. Check out the customer_form.xml for
