Yes, I checked it and was not enough to get this model working. I'm
using g15daemon too, it what makes these keys available. Without using
it they don't get a keycode at all (xev would not display anything,
neither keycode, nor symbol, nor keysym, like if they didn't exist.)

Aye, there are different models and they slightly differ in their way of
working. G15daemon successfully handles a few of them, but with the
model I have, it's just not enough to get the extra keys keysym'd.
(however, they are given keycodes). I should also point that as of
version 1.2.7 g15dameon didn't work with this model at all. I am not
aware of how well other versions work between the one I just mentioned
and the (the one I'm using atm) because I jumped to the latest
available back then after realising 1.2.7 was unable to handle this

I have G keys, media keys (and clock...) working right now. Without that
snippet of code loaded in my .stumpwmrc it would appear to Stumpwm as if
these keys were not being pressed at all since it gives them a keysym,
while g15daemon doesn't.

No worries (:
