I'd make sure you have an entry like this in /etc/wscons.conf:
#keyboard       auto

# Select a kernel builtin keyboard map by uncommenting the following line a=
# altering the country code to your requirements
# (choose from user, us, uk, de, dk, it, fr, jp, sv, no, es, pt).
# See wsconsctl(8), pckbd(4), ukbd(4) etc. for more details.
encoding es

This way it will be configured for your keyboard choice at reboot or exitin=
single user mode.
