Genpi64

Followed the wiki for installing locales and changing keymaps but I can't get anything to change

https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Handbook:AMD64/Installation/Base#Timezone
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Keyboard_layout_switching

Code:
user # nano -w /etc/conf.d/keymaps
keymaps="us"
windowkeys="NO"
extended_keymaps=""
dumpkeys_charset=""


Code:
user # rc-service keymaps restart
Warning: you are stopping a boot service
Caching service dependencies ...    [ok]
Setting keyboard mode [UTF-8]
the keyboard is in some unknown mode
Change to the requested mode may make your keyboard unusable, please use -f to force the change. [ok]
Loading key mappings [us]     [ok]


keymap still is in UK after running

Still very much a beginner to using gentoo but looking to setup an RPi4 for some kiddo use so any help is appreciated.

Maybe that's wrong.

You changed the locale too right? And does the keymap work outside of X?
