How come an user can modify a hidden field is more likely to change
submit button? I don't think an average user will modify anything at all.

As everbody has been telling you, if you check an hidden field it will
work regardless whether the user clicked on a button or hit enter on a
text input. With multiple buttons there is no way (except for using some
Javascript) to tell whether it was clicked a button or the user hit
enter in a text input.
