Those are all provided by the code model. I do not think they even
have the information whether or not those files are generated or not
anymore:-/ We can not really leave out those files from the code model
either: They are needed to parse the code after all.

The .ui files are handled by ExtraCompilers. The "big solution" would
probably be to write one for your .q files.

Sorry, I do not have a good idea on how to do what you want right now.
I'll think about it a bit more.

Best Regards,
