That Info.plist entry is required anyhow. I am using QBluetooth and without that Info.plist as well as the permission granted by the user  this API cannot be use on macOS. Thus the request for permission dialog of the OS pops up also without operating this Permission API. That Permission API allows an app to control this permission granting process.

I am not an expert on anything thus I am not suggesting anything here, but I would bet that similar permission granting methods will popup under Linux and Windows soon, similar to those already supported on macOS, iOS, Android and WebAssembly.
