Since you see this behaviour when specifying /usr/bin/startkde as client it
is more an issue of KDE. However nothing says that the client script used
needs to execute /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc or scripts from
/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d as these scripts don't supplement but replace the
default client (script). Looks like enlightenment_start doesn't do this

So it is no bug then, I'd say. (especially no KDE specific one)

There seems to be a file '$HOME/.config/startkderc' which might do what you
want for startkde. The KDE folks may be able to help.

Well, that serves another purpose.

But you can have your own startup scripts being run by copying them to
~/.config/plasma-workspace/env/ (the suffix has to be .sh) or by specifying
them in "Configure Desktop" (systemsettings5)->Startup and Shutdown->Autostart.

For the OP, the best way seems to be to just set the WINDOWMANAGER environment
variable accordingly though, I think, and not specify a particular "client" as
argument to startx.
