By "... when system boots" you mean when sddm starts, or when the xfce4
Is it actually off, or is the corresponding LED failing to illuminate, but the
keyboard responds correctly? https://forum.xfce.org/viewtopic.php?id=3270
I do not have numlock enabled via openrc on the default runlevel and I have
not installed numlockx. I copied the numlock configuration snippet into /etc/
sddm.conf and set it to 'on'. Restarting enabled the numlock function and
turned on the LED too, once sddm was running. After login into a desktop
finished (Plasma) the numlock remained on. So on this machine it works as
advertised with sddm and a Plasma DE.
xfce4 has a desktop setting, under Settings > Keyboard where you can enable

This is not what I see here of a number of different PCs. There are avatars
for each linux user and there is no log showing on the sddm panel. Do you
have missing components like e.g. elogind, policykit?
If the OS have only one user then this user's avatar will be selected to login
with. With more than one user, the last user who logged in will be selected. > Previously I did not use any log-in manager, I start X from

Have you looked at this page - it describes bashrc as an option: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/X_without_Display_Manager > but I'm not sure if it runs/starts in VT=7

Ctrl+Alt+Fn to discover which virtual terminal your Xsession is running on.
