Not with the categorization in that regard, not that I know of. But, if you have the qml files in an lupdate_only scope, they will probaby appear twice in the tree: Once under the node of the QRC file, and once individually.
If the qml files under the QRC file node are now deeper in the tree than the qml files from the lupdate_only scope, then I think the latter will be selected when synchronizing the selection in the project tree with the current document. That kind of prioritization changed recently I think.

Btw, as far as I know, the need to specify qml files in SOURCES for lupdate is gone since Qt 5.6:
