well my (german) help say that

VK_SEPARATOR     Taste . (numerischer Tastaturblock)
(VK_SEPARATOR     key . (numBlock))
and after it says that
VK_DECIMAL     Taste , (numerischer Tastaturblock)
(VK_DECIMAL     key , (numBlock))

that should mean that this shall be the key for the 1000's seperation : 1.000,00 in german style or 1,000.00 in american style.
But i do also not have such a key on my number Block ... to be honest i have never seen a keybord with such a number block.

But this seems to be wrong (or outdated) because when i give the key out it is the ascii code 108 which is the | (pipe).
on my german keyboard i have to press AltGr + < to reach it.
