Cannot add Apple recovery key

iPhone XR, iOS 14.2

Problem

To add a recovery key to your Apple account, you must record the provided recovery key, then enter it again to confirm that you have recorded it. In some cases, however, even if you verify the recovery key correctly (i.e., enter the exact recovery key provided) Settings.app may complain that you didn't:

Verification failed

Your recovery key is incorrect

Other reports:

Resolution

Sign out of iCloud, restart your phone, then sign into iCloud again.
