Brave on linux not storing passwords in gnome-keyring


I would like to use Brave more, but only if I can use one of the encrypted password managers on linux. The documentation says that either gnome-keyring or kwallet are used — however, when I save a password it does not appear in either gnome-keyring or kwallet. I find it instead in: ~/.config/brave/Login Data

Google-chrome does store passwords in gnome-keyring for me, why doesn’t Brave do as it says it should do? To me this seems like a bug.
