OK, that's not part of the Oxygen style.  As I'm sure you have noticed, 
KWin uses the same window decorations for all windows. regardless of 
whether the application that runs in those windows are Gtk, Qt, Motif, 
or Windows apps running in Wine.

Note that the "look & feel" of Qt/KDE apps is defined by the widget 
style, which is what got ported to Gtk.  It is not affected by the 
plasma theme or window decorations for the same reason it's not affected 
by the wallpaper you chose.
