I cannot confirm this (using a German keyboard).

@pkg-mate-team: can others with non-en_US keyboards confirm this???

Can you please:

   o install a fresh Debian jessie system
   o configure the system to be localized to your needs
     (including LANG, Keyboard settings, etc.)
   o install MATE desktop environment (a fresh install, as I said).

If the issue persists (or if you cannot reproduce), get back to us and  
give feedback.
