That is true, but why are you worried about this in the first place? Are you 
loading random plugins from other sources that may or may not be linked to Qt? 
If so, that's not a common use-case (hence no BKM for this).

The only case that may be relevant is to deal with plugins installed by the 
system Linux distribution. But Qt should refuse to load plugins linked to 
newer versions of itself, not to mention that this is now enforced by the 
dynamic linker itself since Qt 5.6. In any case, the situation is often 
reversed, as user applications often come with Qt versions newer than the 
system installation.
