As a general rule (and without looking at those particular bug reports),
back when I maintained X, I asked reporters to run a bare X session,
meaning without a display manager and without a desktop session. gdm3
(or whatever component behind, handling settings) has been the culprit
several times already, replacing the system settings with other settings
based on user language. (See #590534 for an old example.)

Comparing the output of "setxkbmap -print" from a bare X session and
from $desktop_environment is usually a nice place to start from.
