No, you're not. I'm the one who got confused. There's a platform theme and a 
widget style. They're not the same thing.

The "gtk3" platform theme is in qtbase. Apparently, the "gtk3" widget style 

The commit that removed it said:

    This will allow us to drop gtk2 support from qtbase in future,
    while still providing the gtk2 style for those who want to use it.
Ah, no... since the platform theme is still present, the support is still 
present. The reason must be this:

    Also with moving to qtstyleplugins, the code can be simplified
    because we can directly link to libraries we need, instead of using

Well, seems like you need to get it from qtstyleplugins. Which should be part 
of the Qt release, but isn't. So that needs to be rectified.
