Not just relevant, the "qmenubar-on-mac-os-x" link provides the  
categorical explanation.  ie:  "the table below outlines the strings  
looked for and where the entry is placed if matched ..."

Sure enough.  The action, "Settings," spelling correctly, is moved by  
Qt on OSX under the apple and renamed "Preferences" in accordance with  
the OSX Way.  Developing (albeit with shell windows and emacs) on OSX,  
I saw the addAction method silently fail to add the action to the menu  
I made explicit in my code.  Baz, you must be using a different  
operating system, thus my code sample didn't "silently fail."

Thanks for the links!
