Apparently not in version 20.12.2?  There isn't really much to manage there.

I can start kate and it will load a file, automatically restoring the 
session.  I can set the buffer of the file to read-only and quit kate. 
Next time I start kate, it loads the same file but the buffer is 
writable again.  Hence the session is not restored.

I don't see any option in Menu->Sessions->Manage like one to restore the 
session fully and not only partly.
