[Regression] [Dell XPS 15 9575] Airplane mode key cannot deactivate airplane mode after update to xkb-data 2.23.1-1ubuntu1.18.10.1 from -proposed

Bug Description

Airplane mode works (enable and disable) after the eventual fixes in bug #1740894 and the regression does not occur.

[Original report]

Bug #1740894 proposed update to xkb-data 2.23.1-1ubuntu1.18.10.1 in order to pass KEY_RFKILL to userspace.

Despite the issue described in bug #1740894, on Dell XPS 15 9575 the airplane mode key actually worked flawlessly out-of-the-box after installing Cosmic at beginning of September, using xkb-data 2.23.

Updating to the proposed xkb-data 2.23.1-1ubuntu1.18.10.1 however leads to the following issue:
1. Press airplane mode key Fn+Pos1
-> Works. Pop-up says "Airplane mode enabled", airplane icon appears in panel, Wifi and BT are off.
2. Press Fn+Pos1 again
-> Broken. Pop-up briefly says "Airplane mode disabled", then immediately changes to "... enabled", airplane icon remains in panel, Wifi and BT remain OFF.
