Ardour 5.12.0

I am trying to make a MIDI bindings map for Novation Launchpad Mini MKII, but I am getting no reaction from the transport controls.

Here's my MIDI binding map so far, very simple:

<ArdourMIDIBindings version="1.0.0" name="Novation LaunchPad Mini MKII">
<!-- Transport controls -->
<Binding channel="1" ctl="109" function="transport-start"/>
<Binding channel="1" ctl="110" function="transport-stop"/>
</ArdourMIDIBindings>

Here I'm trying to map 2 controller buttons to the transport. I've traced the input in HEX code and converted them to decimals as this guide suggests: http://manual.ardour.org/using-control-surfaces/generic-midi/midi-binding-maps/

I've picked my map in the generic MIDI protocol settings, and even restarted Ardour. Running it from commandline gives me no errors, the log is clean too.

I am getting reactions from the Launchpad, I can play MIDI notes, and it's routed to the Ardour MIDI control in.

Can anyone tell me what I'm missing here?

What data does the Launchpad send from the buttons you are using, on press and on release?
