I use magic keyboard with macbook on a stand. The Fn keys on magic keyboard only use as standard F1, F2 … keys they don’t work as controls i.e. I can’t use them to adjust volume or screen brightness. Escape key and lock keys work fine. In standard keyboard settings this requires to untick the “Use F1, F2 etc. keys as standard function keys” but my settings only adjust the built-in macbook’s keyboard not the connected magic keyboard.
