I installed F25 on a Dell Chromebook 13 which works great.

The only thing left is the F1 to F11 keys do not work as expected (their print symbols)

I know that there are some key definitions of xkb but I am not sure how to activate them without manually editing the keyboard layout which - on every xkb (or so) update gets wiped again.

How to permanently activate extra chrombook specific key to symbol mappings with xkb?

You might find an answer on one of these forums:

I don't think you're running Crouton but if you are, there are keyboard-mapping related questions at the Crouton subreedit:

This is not helpful, how do you get the idea I am using crouton? This answer is completly fact and informationless with 2 links to vaguely related topics. Don't even bother to answer if you do not know the answer. Comment/ask if you think it adds information of you need more information.
