Do you have a bit more information?
Are you using an old Qt version? I remember Q_OBJECT triggering override related compilation warnings once upon a time.
Does it go away if you remove all clang-tidy and clazy checks?
I wonder if this isn’t actually a compiler warning from clang (the clang code model, -Wsuggest-override). Does adding -Wno-suggest-override to the _clang warnings_ help?
Though I wonder how Qt Creator comes up with that URL above.
