After changing the Downloads folder at Locations (System Settings), the submenu "Computer" contains a link to the old Downloads folder, instead of the new one.
Operating System: openSUSE Leap 15.2
KDE Plasma Version: 5.18.5
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.71.0
Qt Version: 5.12.7
This was reproducible on the newest Tumbleweed snapshot (10/20/20 IIRC), as well.
In order to prevent confusion, I'll attach a picture of the submenu I am talking about.
Operating System: Solus 4.1
KDE Plasma Version: 5.19.5
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.74.0
Qt Version: 5.14.2
Even logging out and logging in doesn't update the path it leads you to.
I guess the model doesn't get notified of the update.
Feel free to close if you want, due to the new Kickoff (I wasn't aware of it when reported).
Unless the issue persists there, of course.
Just confirmed, the issue persists on 5.21.0
(I haven't changed any folder settings since my previous comment)
The issue here is that changing the value in the KCM doesn't update any Places model items that have the old location to point to the new location. So all the links are broken and you need to manually fix them.
Two potential solutions:
1. Have the KCM update the items in the Places model
2. Have the Places model itself use the XDG environment variables for the paths, which do get updated.
Downside of 1 is having to mess with user data
Downside of 2 is that if the user customizes the path, that custom path will be serialized into the config and it won't use an XDG envar path anymore, so it will break.
I'll move this to System Settings for now to investigate option 1. If that doesn't work, we can investigate doing option 2.

@Nathan, sorry I did not find this issue when searching.
When you change the location for Downloads that is populated correctly. All others fail to be populated correctly under places in Dolphin.

I have the same issue Arch Linux
KDE Plasma version 5.24.4
KDE Framework Version 5.93.0
Qt Version 5.15.3
Dolphin Version 21.12.3
Go to System Settings Applications Locations
Set Downloads Path to /mnt/hunter/drive2/Downloads
Issue Dolphin does not change the path to the Downloads folder or in the Places side bar like it used to.
All other Applications for example Firefox, Google Chrome, Gwenview, qbittorrent, ONLYOFFICE etc do use the changed location only Dolphin does not.
