The function keys on Japanese keyboards (I am typing on one right now)
are not used for any special Japanese characters. They can be used when
inputting Japanese to modify the input string, but any keypresses should be
caught by the IME and not passed through to the underlying application.
When inputting SQL, the keyboard would effectively be the same as a US
keyboard. The same applies, AFAIK, to other East Asian languages.

I also happen to have a Thai keyboard knocking around and the function
keys are not used for anything special there either.
