Material Properties: Shortcut assignment for the "New" button does not relate to the interface.

Description

System Information
Operating system: Windows-7-6.1.7601-SP1 64 Bits
Graphics card: GeForce GTX 980/PCIe/SSE2 NVIDIA Corporation 4.5.0 NVIDIA 425.31

Blender Version
Broken: version: 2.81 (sub 16), branch: master, commit date: 2019-11-20 14:27, hash: rB26bd5ebd42e3
Worked: (optional)

Short description of error
The shortcut for the big "New" button in Material Properties does not work for the button, which suggests giving a new material to the active slot. Instead it calls bpy.ops.material.new() and silently creates new materials in the data. This can also be tested with Quick Favorites.

Think this is a general problem some operators relying [too much] on a certain context.

Will confirm for now though.
I think this was reported before, but cannot find it atm...
