I have seen two of the 2018 MB and MBPro have a bad keyboard. Not common, but not something you can limit out either.

Hopefully have Applecare on them.. Depends on the person you talk to at Apple, on how diligently they will take you through the tests.

Your mileage may vary, but it took 3 visits to the differert Apple Stores before they would agree to replace my keyboard.
Auto-add period with double space was turned on
