So the issue here is that both the Lock Keys Status and Keyboard Layout plasmoids specify the input-keyboard icon in their respective json files.

input-keyboard is more correct for Keyboard Layout, so it should be changed to something else for the Lock Keys Status plasmoid. Not sure what, though; nothing jumps out to me as objectively better. We may also need a new icon that we can use for it.

applets/keyboardindicator: Use input-caps-on as default icon

Now it has the same icon across its Widget Explorer entry, config window entry, and compact
representation. And this icon is different from the icon used by the Keyboard Layout widget.
