No. 'Apple USB' should probably be changed to just 'Apple', the idea of
those keymaps is to reflect the layout of Apple keyboards, USB or not.

You don't happen to play with
/proc/sys/dev/mac_hid/keyboard_sends_linux_keycodes on boot? That might
reset the keymap to the kernel's default, which is probably about the
standard us keymap.
