Follow Link hotkey not working

Steps to reproduce

On iPadOS, with Smart Keyboard Folio, move the cursor to any link, then hit the hotkeys to open it. In my case it is Option/Return.

Expected result

The editor opens the link under the cursor

Actual result

A new line is added, as if Option was being ignored.

Additional information

If this is working for other people, it’s possible that it’s just the Apple’s Folio case that is sending different signals, but I’d doubt that. Can anyone report whether this is working for them?
