In Gtk parlance they are called 'accelerators' or 'accels' so you
have better luck searching on that.

Accels are underlined letters in menu item names, accessed by
the underlined letter and pressing the "Alt" key at the same time.
Every menu item should have an accelerator for accessibility reasons.

Keyboard shortcuts are stuff like Ctrl+R or F12. Only some items have

Not my terminology.

According to Gtk things like Ctrl+R are an accelerator - that's what it
calls them.  For example in the file .config/evolution/accels the top
part says:

; evolution GtkAccelMap rc-file         -*- scheme -*-
; this file is an automated accelerator map dump
; (gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/new-item/contact-new" "<Primary><Shift>c")
; (gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/new-item/mail-message-new" "<Primary><Shift>m")
; (gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/inline/show-all" "")
; (gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/mail/mail-add-sender" "")
; (gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/switcher/switch-to-mail" "<Primary>1")
; (gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/shell/show-sidebar" "F9")
