Absolutely, this is something everyone should know about.
Of course, a good indicator that a command is not a screen-reader command is: does it start with the nVDA modifier key (insert usually, or caps lock if laptop settings operate similar to jAWS, which I’ve never looked into). But of course, this isn’t universal; add-ons or scripts often use other key combinations.
But it’s good to kno these things, because you won’t always have access to your screen-reader, and you might still want to perform certain tasks, like run something, shut down the system, or whatever. Also of course, if you have ever been in the position of trying to explain to a sighted person how to do something and you’re not sure what they ought to be doing with their mouse, you can give them the keyboard commands. You might be surprised at how many sighted people don’t actaully know how many functions you can perform with the keyboard alone, and how delighted they are when they learn them.

A big shout out to Gene, Jonathan, & Sylvie for all reinforcing the importance of knowing the difference between application program or Windows OS keyboard shortcuts and screen reader shortcuts.
