Works on my Lenovo Thinkpad T490. When changing brightness pressing hotkeys it switches to maximum for a fraction of second and then switches to expected value. When using slider on widget all works fine.
Thank you!

Very cool

Feel free to commit this with appropriate handling of supported versions. It would also be great if you could start upstreaming the change.
