Alexis: I think you're right; I just tested another keyboard with the same setup, and its Mod4 key worked (strangely its function key did not work...).
I doubt that the actual key has broken on my keyboard: it's mechanical, and 2 keys on opposite ends of the board breaking at once seems unlikely. So, I think a recent update might have broken support for my keyboard. I've been using this to provide support for the extra keys on the side of my keyboard: https://github.com/Wattos/logitech-g710-linux-driver Up until now, this driver has worked well and I have never had any "broken" keys like this before. Nobody's made any commits to this for a few years, so perhaps the driver is no longer compatible with newer linux kernels (I'm using 4.6.3-1-ARCH). I'll try the Mod4 key on another operating system later just to make sure it isn't a physical problem.
