Pressing the shortcut key for most "color" commands does nothing

The screenshot is pretty explanatory. I'm trying to assign a keyboard shortcut to changing the background color of a cell. I search for all "color" commands in Customize -> Keyboard, but none seem to do anything when I press the shortcut key.

The only one that brings up a dialog is Font color, but I don't want to change the font color, I want to change the background color directly, by dropping down the palette from under the Background Color toolbar icon.

Also, what's the difference between "Background color" and "Highlight color"?

In Writer it's easy to see the difference between background color (for a cell) and highlight color (just for text).

I am not sure on Calc. But I supose on the same logic that background is for cell, and highlight is for text in the mean of being different like I found here:
https://help.libreoffice.org/6.4/ro/text/scalc/guide/cellstyle_minusvalue.html?DbPAR=CALC#bm_id3147434

One problem that I found on Version: 6.4.3.2 when searching for info for your bug is that F3 is not saved as a shortcut. 

I confirm your bug, the shortcuts doesn't do anything here.
