I think Im seeing a similar problem.
Im running xorg-x11-6.7.0-0.4 on FC2 1.91

[ra@xo ra]$   setxkbmap -layout us
Couldn't find rules file (xfree86) 
[ra@xo ra]$   setxkbmap -layout is
Couldn't find rules file (xfree86) 

There are certain applications I need to switch keymaps before using
and now that does not work.

This bug should be merged with #120927. The other guy was a little
faster than I.
