Yes, this is super annoying!!! This worked for me on my 2020 M1 Macbook Air running Big Sur 11.2:
On certain Macs, pushing the FN key (which may have a "globe" it) can bring up an emoji keyboard. Disabling this shortcut can be accomplished by opening the System Preferences and navigating to the Keyboard panel.
From within the Keyboard tab, look for the label that reads Press "globe icon" to. It likely reads "Show Emoji & Symbols". Click on the dropdown and choose Do Nothing to disable the emoji shortcut.
I tried this and it worked for the letter e but not for d. I found a discussion thread about this regarding some incompatibilities with Adobe Air. This might be more relevant to you on the programming side.

It is an issue with the latest MacOS and Adobe AIR. Looks like it will be a
while before I can update to the latest Adobe AIR version. I need to update
some other components before I can do that. So it will take some time
