sorry for the late reply. Desktop Session Settings is not present
anymore but if you like you can have it back installing the package
lxsession-edit. Remember that if you want to use it you need to go to
Preferences-> Default Applications for LXSession-->Autostart and set
Disable autostarted application to "no"

The problem is that Default Applications for LXSession doesn't seems
to working fine. Better edit manually your configuration files. I
don't know if the application is temporary but if it is the new
direction, well, we need to help them.
Anyway I don't know if it worth to open a bug or not.
