Unfortunately, taping for stain usually doesn’t work. The stain generally runs under the tape, and you end up with a mess. That is simply the nature of stain. If it didn’t soak in, it wouldn’t be stain.

As others mentioned, because the keys are end-grain, they will take the stain darker.
It would be difficult for the keys to be lighter though.
