If I am not mistaken Qt already looks in the environment variables for

Obviously that's not very integrated in plasma.

The correct way is to configure your system properly. Qt will use libproxy and
will get the settings.

So this should be a bug reported against systemsettings or kded or something then?

libproxy can be compiled with KF5 support, so it can automatically read the proxy settings that kcm_proxy writes. The problem is that this support is/was disabled by default, because of https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-52252

Distributions might need to check if they need to re-enable it.
