It looks like the bug got fixed for newer releases in KPIMTextEdit: https://invent.kde.org/pim/kpimtextedit/-/commit/5be92c63f3bf351eebaeab5860409873d398bce5 Sure enough, if I break from habit and include a newline character at the end of the text selection before issuing the Add Quote Characters command, then the null character does not appear.
