Yes, I'm sure. KEYTABLE="de" I set by hand in /etc/sysconfig/keyboard.

1. grep "^KEYTABLE=" /etc/sysconfig/keyboard
KEYTABLE="de"
2. yast2 keyboard set layout=german
3. grep "^KEYTABLE=" /etc/sysconfig/keyboard
KEYTABLE="de"

To be sure, I set KEYTABLE="" by hand in /etc/sysconfig/keyboard.
1. grep "^KEYTABLE=" /etc/sysconfig/keyboard
KEYTABLE=""
2. yast2 keyboard set layout=german
3. grep "^KEYTABLE=" /etc/sysconfig/keyboard
KEYTABLE=""

So the value keeps untouched.

Y2DEBUG=ALL yast2 keyboard summary
Aktuelle Tastaturbelegung: german

That looks good, but I don't know where "german" comes from while KEYTABLE="".

On the other hand

yast2 sysconfig set KEYTABLE="de"

changes the KEYTABLE to "de" correctly.
