Ok, that makes sense, in the overridden case all keys except focus
switch ones go to VTE and in the non-overriden case only a specified
list go to the VTE (^c, ^d, ^z, ^x, ^o (for nano for git commits)
can't think of any others).  What about if the vte is not focussed?

These two lists should be in a table in the manual in keybindings
section, and the vte setting section referring to that table.
