The “Edit columns” button is visible to everyone who has access to this list form (even for View Only), but users who have no permission to edit list forms will get Access Denied when trying to use this feature.

It is currently not supported to remove this button using OOB settings.

I would suggest you submit this idea via the SharePoint UserVoice forum: https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329214-sites-and-collaboration?category_id=144150
