I'm using lightdm, too. I just don't use a DE, instead prefer to use
just a WM, almost all of the times it's openbox.

/etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf might or might not contain
session-wrapper=/etc/lightdm/xsession

/etc/lightdm/ could contain a greeter.conf

FWIW https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/LightDM#Keymap
but for FreeBSD I found this regarding KDM, which also might (or might
not) apply to LightDM:
