In the case where a screen is attached to my laptop and the two screens are displaying the same content, the password field in the lock screen does get the focus so I need to click on it to be able to enter my password.
Just noticed: if I type my password with the text input not having the input, I can still log in. But visually, it looks like I am not typing anything. So it seems that the problem is not that the text input does not have focus but rather that the dipslay of the text input is not refreshed ...
The problem is still there in 5.14
Hello! You can try to use this (D17706) change, the non-working focus is fixed in it, maybe this will help solve your problem.

Fix lock screen focus
When the screen is locked, the focus always remains on the main screen. This patch fixes the problem: now the focus is on the screen where the cursor is located.
