So am I right in thinking that /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager is now
obsolete?

Not completely, but the selection of the DM needed to be moved out.
Mainly due to the new desktop selection model, where all DEs are
installed based on patterns: YaST simply does not have sufficient
information in all cases what DM to use, based on package selection. As
a result, DMs register themselves now with u-a.

If so, what about the other configuration choices in that file, like
DISPLAYMANAGER_REMOTE_ACCESS ?

At least for now they stay in place. I did not (yet) hear about plans
to changing that. Note though that not all DMs read this file!

Similarly for the keyboard settings - it seems we should now be using
the ibus tool and no longer (for instance) the item in KDE's
systemsetting5 - is that correct?

I have to leave that one up to answer by somebody else. I don't know.

Cheers
