Upon configuring my keyboard shortcuts for my gnome desktop, I discovered that I cannot get rid of a hidden keyboard shortcut for maximizing the focused window with super + up. I am using GNOME Shell 3.24.2 on Ubuntu 17.04.

If I open the keyboard shortcuts in the settings it shows that the shortcut is set to ctrl + super + up, and this shortcut is active too.

I have similar issues with all the other resize-window key-bindings. Any idea how I can fix it?

Open dconf Editor and navigate to /org/gnome/desktop/wm/keybindings/. You'll find it there.
