Qt does support fractional scaling (and quite well, in my opinion). Try using QT_SCALE_FACTOR=1.35 for example.
Meanwhile KDE System settings allows you to set some scaling that seems fractional, however it's not. In the range of 1.0-1.4 you're just making your fonts bigger and at 1.5 widgets are suddenly scaled 2x.
