This is not the file I'm talking about. There is fonts-qt5-wk1.conf
that has things like
<test qual="any" name="family">
<edit name="family" mode="assign">
We use both config files. First we load fonts-qt5-wk1.conf than
fonts.conf so I believe the rules in the latter applying after the first.

Good question. Does anyone have historical information on this?
Btw, the fonts we have are basically just a partial copy of what you can
find under /usr/share/fonts/type1 (+/gsfonts on my kubuntu) and the
config file seems to contain rules that are variants of what you can
find in the config file templates under /etc/fonts/conf.d
(30-metric-aliases.conf and 30-urw-aliases.conf).
