Not directly in settings.

It ask to KDE desktop settings which top application is assigned to type
mime to open (RAW file in this case).

digiKam pass the list of files to open to the application.

To solve the problem : the settings is certainly wrong into desktop to open
more than one file to Darktable. An opion is perhaps missing to get the
instance of application to open all files.
