It's "qt3" that alters $PATH via /etc/profile.d/qt.{c,}sh

"qt" only puts symlinks into /usr/lib/qt4/bin that point to /usr/bin,
so the executables are found with default $PATH already.

What do you find "very strange" about it? Have you run into any source
tarball that fails with qt-devel/qt because it makes strange assumptions?
