Couldn't that be simply in qt5/plugins/platforminputcontexts/libibusplatforminputcontextplugin.so (qtbase/src/plugins/platforminputcontexts/ibus)?

I should add that the recipe I provided to introduce that issue no longer works for me now that I figured out how to disable ibus without uninstalling it.
