Ah yes, good call, that makes sense.

Reminds me of a couple other threads:

Note in the last one, the behavior was due to using biometric login; since the actual login password is not supplied, it is then not possible for it to also unlock the keyring.

Note there is also a workaround some other packages use, maybe worth considering for the Brave Linux package, although I’m not personally a fan of doing that.
