I hope the comments now in the source make it clear:
+/* These tables serve to guess the keyboard type and scancode mapping.
+   Complete modeling is not important, identification/discrimination is. */

E.g. a keyboard definition with only 'AZERTY' and all other keys left as \0 in
theory would be enough to recognize for sure a French keyboard (Swiss,
Canadians etc. please ignore).
In practice, this wouldn't work because the other definitions contain more
matching keys.  The tables do not implement a minimal discrimination tree.

The keyboard is not lacking [] | @ etc. as you can verify with Wine's notepad. 
These are just not essential to identify a French keyboard.  Furthermore, being
to precise may backfire, as the next comment explains (about the German
+ * Keys reachable via AltGr (@, [], ~, \, |, {}) differ completely

I have no idea what a French Mac keyboard looks like.
