man loadkeys
man dumpkeys

Different keymaps used by loadkeys use different sequences for Shift with
functional keys.  There is no standard.  The terminal capabilities
described in terminfo tie those sequences to F11-F20.  Since terminfo
doesn't know anything about real settings (as shown by dumpkeys), you end
up with different sequences for F11-F20.

Yes.  Different non-standard keymaps are included there.

Yes.  The kernel has its default keymap.

I would say no.  ncurses is not supposed to get terminal settings from any
other place but terminfo or termcap.
