I can't reproduce this in GNU Emacs 27.1 (build 1,
x86_64-apple-darwin18.7.0, NS appkit-1671.60 Version 10.14.6 (Build

emacs -Q
M-: (setq mac-option-modifier 'nil)
M-: (setq mac-right-option-modifier 'meta)
Now 'C-h k' describes up/down/left/right keys alone when I press them
with the left option key and M-up/down/left/right keys when I press them
with the right option key.
