This is a question about a Qt application that uses WebKit: on
webkit-dev, we deal with WebKit internal development. You should ask
that type of question on a Qt mailing list

After a small research, I think it is not the case (we do not try to
read any of the variables you mentioned). It may be enforced at the Qt
network back-end level (a quick search did not provide any useful
answer however the likely answer is that it does not).
It would make sense for us to support them somehow (Firefox has an
extension to do that). Could you file a bug on WebKit bugzilla
(https://bugs.webkit.org (you will need to register a free account))?

Some google searches will tell you how to set them. Your best move is
to check the variables yourself and set the proxy (to get the
variables' values, use getenv(3)).
