It turns out I don't have this issue anymore after a clean install of 19.10.

So they can't switch languages in the greeter and they can't input national characters until they login, go to gnome settings and manually set the keyboard layout. A similar bug was https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/lightdm/+bug/919200, but that was only solved for the single-layout case.
