I sent this which confirms some recent modifications were correct.

Hi Stanislav,

I don't know how this part of Plasma works, but I know how LXQt does :).
In LXQt power actions (shutdown, reboot, logout, hibernate, suspend) are
handled by an independent provider, and it is called through DBus. There
are some available providers that will be triggered if available, in a
priority order. See the list in [1]. As you can see, the systemd
provider is the default one if available (if no custom provider is
available), followed by UPower and ConsoleKit.

That said, I don't what could be the reason for your problem. Please,
fill a bug report so that someone can further investigate that (and
probably take a look at Plasma's source).
