They do have keysym entries on my system. I don't know how relevant this

You could try one or more of the following:

- Driver "kbd" instead of "keyboard"
- comment out the "ctrl:nocaps" line
- "pc104" or "pc105" as the XkbModel
- add a line: Option "Xkbdisable" "true"

More suggestions are in /etc/X11/xkb/README.config.
