you mean "pure Qt" applications like Qt Creator or simple the Qt Assistant are NOT affected? And newly started KDE applications continue to be affected once you caught the issue?

There is none; each application communicates directly with the part of the X server and libraries that implements the clipboard, via Qt functions. Clipboard managers like Klipper just sit on top of that but a priori use the same APIs to provide their functionality.
