at least the Type-5 to Type-6 keyboards used a dip switch to set the locale/layout. This setting is read during power-up (device probing phase) by the OBP.
I had "lost" my printout of the older keyboards (Type-5, Type-5c) switch settings, otherwise I had posted my reply earlier.
If the Type-7 keyboard uses this dip switch too, please check the setting. It should be located either at the back or underside of the keyboard.
The rightmost 4 positions (2,3,4,5) are the lower-significant-bits (value 8,4,2,1). The single position (1) on the right is the value 1 (if set) of the most-significant-bits, the value 2 is hardwired enabled.
The values for the locale/layout are between HEX 23 for french and 3F for french canadian.
Portuguese layout is HEX 29 (switch 2 and 5 set/ON).
Hope this helps.

The OP found the solution while I have been writing my reply.
