Hi Gustavo,

Also not sure if this is a bug. But you can configure the desired
behavior by hooking in at activation of visual line mode AFAICS.

You could e.g. add

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---

(add-hook 'visual-line-mode-hook
          (lambda () (when (derived-mode-p 'org-mode)
                       (local-set-key (kbd "C-a") #'org-beginning-of-line)
                       (local-set-key (kbd "C-e") #'org-end-of-line)
                       (local-set-key (kbd "C-k") #'org-kill-line))))

--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

to your config.
