I also use EXWM, and made good experiences with setting keyboard remapping options directly in my system's config.scm (via the :options of keyboard-layout, which sets XKB options; see the manual for examples:

However, I just use it to remap capslock to escape (for vim/evil-mode), so if you need more, I'm not sure if it'll work for you — I've never used xmodmap, I'm not sure if you can do everything using XKB options that xmodmap can do — at first glance xmodmap seems more general.

I have setup my Emacs iwth EXWM.  I am trying to remap several keys to
avoid repetitive strain injury (RSI), also known as Emacs pinky.  To
accomplish that, I am using xmodmap.  It works perfectly when I invoke
the command directly.  However it doesn't work when I put it in Emacs
startup files.  After several days of research, I discovered that
xmodmap only works when I have pressed atleast one key in my keyboard.
Any solutions?
