Is that still the case ?

Is that specific to one platform ?

It is still (and has always been ) the case.
I just reproduced on Windows and Mac. Didn't try on Linux.
The VTK plugin directory has never been added in the path of Qt Designer plugins.

Additional information:

In VTK build dir, the file is directly located in the "bin" directory (or bin/{Release|Debug|...} in the multiconfig case).

Considering that we are not installing VTK when superbuilding it, simply appending this path to the "QT_PLUGIN_PATH" variable wouldn't work.

Let's also note that within VTK build system, it exists a variables referencing the plugin. (See variables "VTK_INSTALL_QTPLUGIN{DIR|FILE}" in PluginInstall.cmake file). The issue is that this variables are not set in the VTKConfig.cmake file ...
