Of course, I always first look in other Archlinux-based forums and in google for possible solutions, but I didn't find any suitable ones here. These errors only appear if I track them down explicitly with journalctl.

see here on KDE bug side:

This could be a possibly related Arch forum discussion, but, if this is the case, I don't think the "solution" is a viable one...
