Is there a way to forcefully re-enable allow_external_password_cache under KDE

is there a way to (re-)enable password storage and retrieval via secret 
service under KDE?

The /allow_external_password_cache/ option was disabled in this ticket:

But for me it would be useful to override this setting, I'm not using 
KWallet as my secret-service (I'm using KeePassXC), and are not affected 
by the possible deadlock.
I thought about somehow changing the XDG_SESSION_DESKTOP env variable 
that pinentry-gtk-2 sees, but I don't think I can do that (because 
gpg-agent is launching pinentry?)

Currently I downgraded the pinentry version.
My problem is, that I  sign my git commits and now I have to write my 
passphrase every time I commit.
(With version 1.2.1-3 it takes the passphrase out of my KeePass database)
