I have never had keyboard issues in wine on macOS and I'm now running Mojave....

Also why wine 3.0.3 when the latest stable is 3.0.4, and why bother using stable use wine-devel3.2.1 or wine-staging3.2.1.

Side Note;
Wineskin is not supported here only official winehq builds, wineskin is no longer updated by doh123 but I do run a Wineskin Fork that downloads the portable wine builds from here and repackages them into Engines that Wineskin can use.

well, turns out that wine devel and staging still have the same problem, any other options?

Did you test within a clean wine prefix each time?
Or with Wineskin make a new wrapper using the version of wine you want to use will provide a clean prefix within the wrapper.
