If there is misleading or incorrect information in the website, please let us know: https://www.qt.io/contact-us/other 

Open-source licensing is a complex topic, so it is always easiest to look into it case by case as it depends a lot upon what and how is developed. The qt.io website tries to give as accurate guidance as is meaningful for the generic case and without going too deep into the details.

    well, i'm 100% behind you. but this is not useless. 
    at least you know, that the qc may reject your request.
    on the other side, they may not. depends.
    for me, presonally, there are few reasons to go commercial.
    the information on their qt.io website was ever misguiding, several years already, and seems to continue.
    but i think due to the nature of the "company" (shame on you!).
    so, in turn, i hope some guys on this list will get some some ideas about (l)gpl theory.
