I'm not fully understand this report.

The viewer sends keys as X11 keysyms, as specified in the RFB protocol used by VNC. There is no knowledge about actual keyboard type (us/de, qwerty/qwertz) from the RFB proto point of view.

May I ask you if you have any keyboard issues when you use vino and TigerVNC viewer, please? (for example wrong keys are emitted on the server side)
