Squished font line height in kwrite,konsole compared to qt5 versions and gtk

On the screenshot below kwrite (Qt6), konsole (Qt6), Krusader’s editor (Qt5), emacs (gtk3) using the same font (Hack 10) with all other settings at defaults opened under a fresh test user account.

Is anyone else experiencing this? Given that both konsole and kwrite are affected could it be an upstream bug?
