That's interesting. The documented behaviour should include /usr/local/share.

If I run "kf5-config --path data", I get:
/home/zing/.local/share/:/usr/share/:/usr/local/share/

Which are the locations documented here:
https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qstandardpaths.html#StandardLocation-enum

What does your kf5-config say?
