I’ve just tested this on a qt5-mac installation which results in the same output, of course:
$ qtpaths --paths ApplicationsLocation
Unknown location: ApplicationsLocation

$ qtdiag
Qt 5.3.2 (Nov  8 2014, Clang 5.1 (clang-503.0.40) (Apple), 64 bit, release build) on "cocoa" little endian/
Mac OS version: 0xb

since it uses the same code like the Qt 5.3.1 currently used on Jenkins master and my OSX/CI system.

So the question is, would KDE/KF5 apps actually make use of this path type and if so for what?

I guess I should direct this question to K-F-D, right?
