If I recall correctly (I don't have a full kde system in this laptop to
check this out) you can tell kleopatra to use gpg agent or use some
other method - which I can't precise because I don't have kleopatra
installed here, as I said.

Depends on the desktop. In XFCE, for instance, it starts the "Gnome
keyring GPG agent, or equivalent", to do it. But Thunderbird can also be
configured to do the caching on its own.

Sometime ago I had problems because I had two or three agents competing
for control. I had a generic session start file that started the gpg
agent, and the desktop was also starting that or a different agent...
because that was the old way of doing it.
