Bug#848020: gnome-shell: *Removing* shortcuts also doesn't work--including default setting

Package: gnome-shell
Version: 3.38.4-1
Followup-For: Bug #848020

The "launcher" family of shortcuts (help, office, email etc.) are all
"disabled" in my system.  I don't remember disabling them, so I think it's
a default setting.

Howoever, when I press Meta+F1, Meta+F2 etc., sometimes it launches the help
system, Evolution etc.  This is despite none of these apps being listed in
the shortcut lists anywhere.  (I don't like these shortcuts and there seems
to be no way to permanently disable them.)

The "sometimes" aspect may be related to #728328.

Possibly related: I'm (unfortunately) on an Apple keybard, and I have "Windows
key is Meta" turned on on gnome-tweaks (so my Meta key is not the Alt key).
