I am also running EXWM under X11 on Guix System. Using `xsetroot` in my
~/.xsession file is all that I have needed to do, and my pointer
settings persist under EXWM as expected. My guess is that you have
overriden your emacs cursor settings somewhere and need to undo that.
Here are the usual places to look:

- ~/.emacs.d/init.el
- ~/.exwm
- ~/.Xresources

Good luck,
