To trigger the problem:

Start term-mode with a visual text-mode application that requires f-keys
to function. In my case, I was using aws-shell.

Leave the terminal in char mode.

Attempt to use f-keys to operate the application.

The f-keys operate as they would in any other mode.

Example solution:
(defvar f-key-defs
  (let ((fkeys nil))
    (dotimes (i 12)
      (push (cons (intern (concat "f" (int-to-string (1+ i))))
                  (format "\e[%d~" (+ i (if (> i 4) 12 11))))

(defun send-f-key ()
  "Send an f-key escape sequence to the sub-process."
  (term-send-raw-string (alist-get last-input-event f-key-defs)))

(dotimes (i 12)
  (define-key term-raw-map
    (vector (intern (concat "f" (int-to-string (1+ i)))))
