About LibreOffice dialog for this bug report
There appears to be a conflict in shortcut definitions within the LO 18.104.22.168 Calc component. I've attached a screenshot of the About LibreOffice dialog to show what I'm running.
For the Edit > Select > Select to Previous Sheet menu sequence, the menu button indicates that the shortcut is Shift + Command + Up arrow. I've attached a screen shot of the Edit > Select menu to show this.
On the Keyboard tab of the Tools > Customize dialog, the list indicates that the shortcut for this function should be Shift + Command + Page up. I've also attached a screenshot of this section of the list.
My experimentation indicates that the Shift + Command + Up arrow sequence is the select to upper block margin function which, if confirmed, may indicate that the legend on the Edit > Select > Select to Previous Sheet button is misleading.
Please could somebody review this behaviour to check for any error? Of course the same confusion exists for the Edit > Select > Select to Next Sheet menu option.

Tools > Customize dialog on macOS
In my introduction I should have stressed that this is a macOS issue, not Windows or Linux.
You are right - the different places are inconsistent.
In fact, the actually implemented shortcut is cmd+page up, which you can access on laptops by holding fn+cmd+up (fn + up is page up on macs)
This corresponds also to the Windows Excel shortcut which is ctrl+page up
In the customize dialog you were actually looking at the wrong item, the shortcut you show does work to _select sheets_. The correct shortcut is "To Next sheet" which does show the correct shortcut
(menu item is no in LO 3.3, so not inherited)
Just for the record, I don't reproduce this on Linux Debian with LO 7.3.2.
Perhaps only MacOs bug but could someone give a try with a newer LO version? (7.2.6 or brand new 7.3.2)

Reviewing this, the comment was around "select next/previous sheet" that does work, I was not reading it properly
However the select menu does show the shortcut with up/down arrow, instead of the page up / down arrows as the tools screen
So still a valid bug on 7.5

If all works as expected, then the only thing to correct is to show the correct keyboard shortcut in the menu. Having a report opened and not solved for 3 years just for that seems a little embarrassing.
Perhaps adding "UI" to the report's title/subject might bring the minimal attention needed in order to solve this UI detail. CC'ing Heiko might help too. Adding "needsUXEval" as keyword seems too much just for this, but after 3 years... I'll leave any of these (or any other) possible actions to Eisa or to Steve.
Since commit 139e0fb7132cb7b943ea50930a8a7ede72ea5e47 for bug 45705 (landed in version 7.5), the key combinations are assigned to zooming in and out, suite-wide.
So sheet selection shortcuts are gone from the main menu.
I guess we can close this as "works for me" for a lack of a better one.
A follow up enhancement request could be for assigning a new shortcut, if users see it as useful enough.

Sorry, meant to write "landed in version 7.6".
