Still getting sounds of notifications in Do Not Disturb mode

I’ve tried adjusted the settings to get rid of the sounds, to no avail:

You also have to check the notification settings for the individual applications. Some applications ─ most notably Electron apps and GTK apps ─ don’t allow fine-tuning via the Plasma settings and need to have their notifications either turned off completely, or configured within the application itself.

Alright, I had configured applications to not show in DND mode—or that was the default—but I have now turned off to show popups and in history as well—although that is just to try to get them to not sound in DND mode¸ even though just ticking “do not show in DND mode” should be enough.

BTW this is still an issue.

Any suggestions for information that I can provide or steps to troubleshoot and fix?
