How does WinUAE use keyboard LED as Amiga LED?

I came across a question with Retroarch devs:

Doesn’t WinUAE hi-jack Keyboard LED like Numlock etc for power light emulation or drive light emulation?

How is it done without actually turning num lock etc on and off, just turning the LED by itself? Is that a win32 API function or some hack, or maybe it does actually switch num lock functionality, just nobody cares?

I don't think WinUAE even does that, but I've known other emulators that do.

There is at least two ways (Windows supported APIs that don't need extra privileges) to change keyboard leds but I don't remember which one is the best choice. ("USB mode" selects it)
