That seems like an oversight, because the diff does include qdoc-like
strings. I opened an issue: https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-102743

They are at least mentioned in the documentation here:

    "The Chromium version can also be read at runtime using the
    qWebEngineChromiumVersion() method, and
    qWebEngineChromiumSecurityPatchVersion() to read the current patch

qWebEngineVersion() and qWebEngineChromiumVersion() were added in 6.2,
while qWebEngineChromiumSecurityPatchVersion() was added in 6.3.

If the mention above is enough to make them "official", it'd be good to
have them in PyQt too (ideally all three).

For a bit of context, I requested them to be added (via IRC if I
remember correctly), because right now, it's rather difficult to get
that information. If it's needed after QtWebEngine is initialized, it
can be parsed from the user-agent string (which already qualifies as a
hack in my book). If it's needed before that, though, things get... fun:
