xev (on purity) tells me

KeyPress event, serial 33, synthetic NO, window 0x5a00001,

state 0x2, keycode 37 (keysym 0xffe5, Caps_Lock), same_screen YES,
XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
XmbLookupString gives 0 bytes:
XFilterEvent returns: False
when I press the key labelled “Ctrl”. i.e. it is swapped, and

KeyRelease event, serial 33, synthetic NO, window 0x5a00001,
root 0x298, subw 0x0, time 3008788137, (784,664), root:(794,756),
state 0x4, keycode 66 (keysym 0xffe3, Control_L), same_screen YES,
XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
XFilterEvent returns: False
when I press the key labelled “Caps Lock”, again swapped as expected

I just now connect from purity to quirky and indeed the “key labelled CapsLock” still toggles Upper Lower case and acts as a control key.  I’ll send the logfile(s).  I’m assuming they are the ones which named “quirky”.

Has anyone reported success with this swapping?
