Is there a documentation available to configure this, now that it's possible to do now?

Ok, the workaround described in T486 helps!
The EC firmware needs to be replaced.
Maybe this is a license issue, because the ROM is non-free and distributing it freely would be problematic, but maybe @mladen.pejakovic will tell us more.
Ok, got a reply from a Gnome dev, to reset the tracker via this command: tracker reset --hard

It's still not clear how (what steps have to be done exactly) I (or Purism) can fix this issue and we all can agree that this issue shouldn't be existing, right?
Hmmm. Maybe the problem you're describing is not the problem I have, because the mapping shown in Gnome Settings/Region and Language (see the screenshot) shows the pipe key at the correct position and nope, I didn't choose the US keyboard layout at installation or anytime else.
At the testscreen it even shows that the pound sign (german layout on the right, left from enter) is pressed instead of the pipe sign (right from shift).
I'd prefer if it's fixed on the firmware level instead having a workaround installed, which only works PureOS.
Is it somehow possible to apply the firmware fix myself? (I'm dependent on it, I need it for work...)
Is the EC flashable on PureOS, or do I need an external programmer?
Jep, no change.
Ok, it reports 240-5pureos1 as the current installed version after apt full-upgrade, but it still inputs the pound sign instead of pipe.
Sorry, that was a bit to early :)

The build is still failing :(

Did an upgrade and rebooted, it still reports 239-7pureos1.
Is the new version already in green?
Here's the output: 239-7pureos1

Is it possible, that it's fixed on US and UK layouts, but on DE not?
Still have this issue...

I have a brandnew Librem 13 and installed the newest available PureOS version. Updated it in full and now it doesn't boot in normal or recovery mode, so I suppose it will be quite easy to replicate this issue..
