No. We are sending the opt-out header by default. The "DNT: 1" which
will be sent, when the "DoNotTrack" is set to "true" (the default),
tells websites which support this functionality not to track you.

No additional change is required. KIO::Scheduler automatically reads
the settings in kioslaverc, in addition to kio_<protocol>rc and makes
it available to each ioslave in form of a meta-data. See the config()
functions in slavebase.cpp and
