libinput 1.26.0 was released yesterday with an update that corrects the classification of FW16 keyboard modules.

      Recognizing Framework 16 keyboard modules as internal keyboards

This will eliminate the need for a separate local “quirks” file once this release gets adopted by the various Linux distributions. libinput 1.26.0 is now available in the Arch “extra-testing” repo.

Thanks for sharing, this is great to hear.

I wonder if this will also resolve the issue reported elsewhere where the keyboard doesn’t go to sleep when the lid is closed and can accidentally wake the device up if it get’s pressed through the display.
