Cannot remap 'New tab' to 'New tab to the right'

Description of the issue:
Hi, I’m trying to change the default behaviour when opening a new tab (cmd+t on macOS) to have it automatically open in the tab group I am currently in. I succeeded in remapping ctrl+t from ‘New tab’ to ‘New Tab to the Right’ on Ubuntu 22.04 running snap’s brave-browser, whereas on macOS mapping cmd+t to any other action results in opening a new tab, and the original mapping cannot be disabled. I don’t see why this would be a limitation of the OS itself, as is the case of other keystrokes like cmd+r or cmd+s.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Open Settings > System > Shortcuts
  2. Try to map cmd+t to ‘New Tab to the Right’.
  3. New tab opens with no change in the shortcuts tab.

Expected result:
The action is either remapped successfully or shows a warning that the keystroke is already in use by ‘New tab’ (but is allowed to be overwritten)
