TTY login: some keycombos do not work in editor 'micro'

When logging via Ctrl+Alt+F1, and opening the text editor micro, some key combinations do not work. Ctrl+Home and Ctrl+End do not work at all. Ctrl+Q and Ctrl+S work only if I press the Control key on the left side, if I press the Control key on the right side it does not work. Environment variables: TERM=linux, SHELL=zsh. Laptop LG S425.

I don't know if this is the best section of the forum for my question. If there's a better section to post/move the question, I would be glad to know about.

If you wish your thread moved, just drop the moderators a note using the "report" link.
So this is in the console -- no Xorg or Wayland?

I have edited the keyboard map in "/usr/share/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty" (to add a second control key) and now every key combination works fine in nano. (Ctrl+Home, Ctrl+End still do not work in micro. So I guess it is an specific issue related to micro, when logging via console - no X11 and no Wayland)
