no - it's built-in...

Very briefly, it uses the terminfo/termcap/whatever database for
home/end, and adds in - if asked - the xterm function-keys.

The latter isn't much used (but I should rework it, since I've
incorporated much of that into ncurses as extended capabilities).  My
main use for it is to ensure that special keys come in as a special key
rather than individual bytes.
but I digress...

That really sounds more like a mismatch between terminal emulator
and terminal database.  (If it's some program setting TERM to "xterm"
but not really xterm, I've been there a lot).

Given some more details, I may be able to offer advice.
