On Windows, the shortcut panel in the develop module (invoked using Ctrl + <) uses the "Command" key (which is a MacOS key and doesn't exist in Windows) instead of "Control" (which is used under Windows).
This is specific to the Develop module, shortcut panels on other modules are correct.

This may be confusing for people who doen't know that "Command" on MacOS is equivalent to "Control" on Windows.

In which language are you running LR?

I'm running Lightroom in French and Windows is in French, too.

This also happens with German, Italian, Spanish, and Swedish, but not with English, Dutch, or Portuguese.  (I didn't test the other languages.)

The problem is yet another set of fat-fingered edits to TranslatedStrings. For example, comparing TranslatedStrings_lr_sv_SE.txt between 7.0.1 (Classic) and 2015.12, we see diffs such as:
< "$$$/AgDevelopShortcuts/Auto_White_Balance/Key=Command + Shift + U"
> "$$$/AgDevelopShortcuts/Auto_White_Balance/Key=Kommando + Skift + U"
Changing "Command" back to "Kommando" produces the correct output in Help > Develop Module ShortCuts.
