It did load the expected keys onto the .machine keyring, enforcing the x509 indicating a self-signed CA if the compile time option CONFIG_INTEGRITY_MACHINE_KEYRING_CA_ENFORCED=y was set, loading all keys in the case of CONFIG_INTEGRITY_MACHINE_KEYRING=y.

The following is in Jarkko's tree:

+ * Try to load the MokListTrustedRT MOK variable to see if we should trust
+ * the MOK keys within the kernel. It is not an error if this variable
+ * does not exist. If it does not exist, MOK keys should not be trusted
+ * within the machine keyring.
+ */
+static __init bool uefi_check_trust_mok_keys(void)
+ struct efi_mokvar_table_entry *mokvar_entry;
+ mokvar_entry = efi_mokvar_entry_find("MokListTrustedRT");
+ if (mokvar_entry)
+ return true;
+ return false;

I don't think this works with your mokutil PR:

static int
return set_toggle("MokListTrustedNew", 0);

From what I saw, MokListTrustedRT searches for a mok-variable entry in
the MOK-specific directory in sysfs while MokListTrustedNew creates one
in the EFI dir...
