Which is because they are not the even same command (file-export versus file-overwrite), and word from the GIMP bugtracker says that this was very intentional.  This also means that once they fix the bug that both export/overwrite commands are accessible regardless of which one is visible on the menu (yes that is a bug), hitting Ctrl+E in the latter case will do absolutely nothing.  Which while not technically a bug is DEFINITELY a regression for the end user.

You can still assign a shortcut for it yourself (look for file-overwrite in your Keyboard Shortcuts screen), maybe Ctrl+Alt+E.
