It seems that setting QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME causes the problem, inside Plasma as well as inside i3. However, not setting causes all KDE (5?) application not showing any icons when used inside i3, so it's not an option either.

My theme is Breeeze, accorting to qt5ct.
How to use the plasma-integration platform theme plugin if not using Plasma5 desktop?
It was very hard for me to find information about using KDE application outside of Plasma.
