What is the output of:

# systemctl status systemd-vconsole-setup.service

after running 

# localectl set-keymap de


I think systemd only updates tty0 by restarting systemd-vconsole-setup.service.
If tty[1-9] are already used, they will not be updated by localectl.

What is the contents of /proc/cmdline?

(background: the kernel command line setting always overrides system config, hence you can set localectl as many times as you wish to set the locale settings, as long as something is written in /proc/cmdline to override it is ignore...)
