There probably never was a clear solution; I've added some observations on that to the topic.

My hunch is that settings restore is only well tested in unit-tests, not so much "in the wild"; I wouldn't be amazed if many or even most KDE devs prefer to run a mostly their desktop and apps with default/stock settings and thus rarely encounter settngs restore issues.

And for certain settings (like exact window positions) it appears there is even a PoV from the main developer that those cannot or shouldn't be restored. That'd be BS of course so I hope this is just me misinterpreting that person's statements.
