Bug Description

in 3.34, gnome-settings-daemon has removed its handling of numlock state persistence, claiming that mutter should be handling that now ( However, numlock is always off when I start a session, and does not get remembered when I turn it on, log out, and log back in.

Prior to filing a bug myself I searched launchpad for "num lock", so this bug with "numlock" in the title did not show up. The bug I filed is Bug #1846249. I am experiencing the same issue under 19.10 when logged in with Wayland. The problem is not present in an X session. In fact I can do the following:

(1) boot the computer with the numlock key (led) active
(2) login to a Wayland session and the number keys won't work but num key led is on
(3) log out (not reboot) and log into an X session
(4) number keys work immediately (have not touched numlock key and led is still on)
(5) log out (not reboot) and lot back into a Wayland session
(6) number keys do not work unless I hit numlock key which turns off the numlock led

The relevant gsettings for numlock can be found in my bug report as well as some other logs and information:
