ESC <left> (translated from ESC M-O D) runs the command org-metaleft            
                                  
(found in org-mode-map), which is an interactive compiled Lisp                  
                                  
function in ‘org.el’.

ESC <left> (translated from <escape> <left>) runs the command
backward-word (found in global-map), which is an interactive compiled
Lisp function in ‘simple.el’.
