Yes, fix was initially integrated in '5.12' and '5.12' is merged to '5.13' from where it is then went in Qt 5.13.0 and future releases

At that tíme '5.12' was the stable one and by default all fixes should be integrated in that branch.
So merges went 5.12 -> 5.13 -> dev. And in case of release branch exists those are merged back to feature branch (meaning 5.12.x -> 5.12 and 5.13.x -> 5.13).
At the beginning of September '5.12' was moved to cherry-pick mode meaning no more merges from 5.12 -> 5.13. So from now on merges are:
5.13 -> 5.14 -> 5.15 -> dev + possible merges from release branch to feature branch (5.12.x -> 5.12 and so on)
