Multimedia keys stop working after keyboard layout change

With the default keyboard layout, the multimedia keys originally work (e.g., volume up/down etc). As soon as I change the layout from US to UK, they no longer work. The events are still being triggered but KDE does not respond to them. Changing the layout back to US doesn't resolve the issue and using slightly different layout options (101 keys, 104 keys, international, with Windows keys etc) doesn't make any difference.

I checked the keyboard shortcuts options and noticed that there are multiple entries for VolumeUp, VolumeDown etc. but they are already there with a default, working setup.

Using KDE5 installed via pkg.
