Hmm, and prooflinks for "should" part?
Not sure what you mean by this, but I'm referring to both /etc/mc/mc.keymap and /etc/mc/mc.default.keymap as the source of "should ...", which on my system lists these two entries
    Home = ctrl-a; alt-lt; home; a1
    End = ctrl-e; alt-gt; end; c1
None of these options  work for me.

You can try "Learn keys" functionality to redefine mc keys to some
That I did, with no success.  I duly pressed <Space> with Home and End the current selection, pressed Ctrl-A/E respectively and then repeated that key-combo when the Help message cleared, but in neither case did it then show OK for the choice.
