Yes, it should, but it could not be done before because many packages
did depend on xlibs.  Not sure if it will get fixed though, but it
is harmless.

Does it work if you remove
  <FK13> = 182;
  <FK14> = 183;
  <FK15> = 184;
from /usr/share/X11/xkb/keycodes/macintosh?

You can modify these settings by adding an lv3:* option, see
/usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/xorg.lst for a list.
