I missed that part, sorry. One (hackish) way would be to create a new
user account, modify only those gsettings keys then copy
~/.config/dconf/user to (the gdm user home dir[1])
/var/lib/gdm/.config/ and of course make the file owned by gdm.

I haven't tested that method though; but IIRC, one way to get gdm to
use custom multiple monitor settings was to copy
~/.config/monitors.xml (created by the display module of
gnome-control-center) from your regular user account to
/var/lib/gdm/.config/ .

I hope that helps.
