I debugged this little bit and found that trash applet have
X-KDE-Library set in its metadata.desktop which is unused. I removed
it now however I see that if condition added in

+    if (!offer->property("X-Plasma-API").toString().isEmpty() &&
+        offer->property("Library").toString().isEmpty()) {

is removed in ea924b14691da3819ca17d876f63ffc686fcf840 as I think
there is no replacement for this in KPluginMetadata or something..

If we want to make it backwards compatible this case should be handled
somehow or otherwise any other desktop files which are ported to QML
and have stray X-KDE-Library needs fixing.
