Programmatic Interaction

There's two ways to interact with the map - that is to control it, as well as receive data from it - and it's current viewport, aka. 'camera'.

via User Gestures

The first way is through user interaction, where they perform gestures (such as drags/pans), and the map reacts automatically to those gestures to change the camera view of the map.

These are usually restricted by Options. It is possible to disable all input, either by disabling all gestures, or by wrapping the map with something like IgnorePointer.

via Programmatic Interation

However, the map camera can also be controlled by calling methods on a controller, and its state read by getting values from an exposed camera.

Changing the state of MapOptions.initial* will not update the map camera. It may only be updated through a MapController.
