First off, the issue disappeared just as it came. I think I still get an automatic opening bracket in some conditions - on my other machine so I'd have to verify if I'm not imagining that.

Yes, I turned it on and back off. DIdn't make a difference in the session where the glitch occurred, while that session was running.

That commit introduced an `auto-bracket` kate modeline parameter. It defaults to off, but I guess I'll have to assume that something got messed up there until things sorted themselves out.

Maybe a generic form of the settings blues? :) The other day I somehow lost all my KDevelop shortcut customisations (including lots of alternates) and had a hell of a time restoring them all.

Ah, thanks, good to know, something positive to keep in mind if ever I notice a loss of settings now that I finally upgraded to 5.52.0 (from 5.47.0) :)
