I think they shouldn't as QLabels usually are associated with another widget 
which will have the tooltip (I am not a usability folk though).

"Since these widgets pull the tooltips and whatsthis text from the .kfcg"
Is that so? I thought not, please check that info.

from code but not from .kcfg files.
Keep the check if I am true. Clarify if I am wrong.
