On the Atreus, you only use your thumbs for the two center-most keys,

Sorry, we are talking about too many things at once.
On atreus I use thumbs to control the two central keys, and then three keys
in the bottom row. Then one key in the bottom row is unbound, and the
outermost bottom key is for palm.
On keyboardio atreus it's mostly the same. The two new central keys are
hard to reach, so I only use one of them, to switch to a rarely used layer.
I'm also curious to hear how easily-reachable these keys are. Seems like
they'd be easier to reach if they were lowered a bit, but I understand that
one of the goals of the Atreus is to be portable.
I think that if they had a taller key cap, they might be reachable just
fine. As they are, they are somewhat pointless IMHO. But for rarely used
stuff, sure, why not.
