Interesting. It’s not just you and it’s not your Mac. I see this on
GTK+3/GNU/Linux:

$ emacs -Q

M-x org-mode RET

C-h k M-<left>
<M-left> runs the command org-metaleft […]

C-h k ESC <left>
ESC <left> (translated from <escape> <left>) runs the command
backward-word […]

$ emacs -Q -nw

C-h k ESC <left>

M-x org-mode RET
ESC <left> (translated from ESC M-O D) runs the command org-metaleft […]

<M-left> runs the command org-metaleft (found in org-mode-map) […]


Looking into org.el shows that it binds [(meta left)] which seems to
not include the GUI <M-left> key.
