If the command isn't used the target automatically links against a sane set of default plugins, for each Qt module that the target is linked against. For more information, see target_link_libraries.
Each plugin comes with a C++ stub file that automatically initializes the plugin. Consequently, any target that links against a plugin has this C++ file added to its
Note: This command imports plugins from static Qt builds only. On shared builds, it does nothing.
This command was introduced in Qt 5.15. You can use qt5_import_plugins in older versions of Qt.
