C-h k shows the "raw data" as well as the "final event".  It doesn't show
all the intermediate steps.  In this case one of the steps is to turn the
escape sequence into S-left, and another step turns `S-left' into `left'
(because Emacs always tried to unshift a key to find a binding in case
where the shifted version has no binding).

I.e. under X11 where the "raw data" is already a `S-left', C-h k shows:

   <left> (translated from <S-left>) runs the command backward-char
