I think Martin is right. I should have read the docs first before bothering
Klipper Docs  says "Synchronize contents of the clipboard and the selection
Sets the clipboard mode. When an area of the screen is selected with mouse or
keyboard, this is called the “selection”. If this option is selected, the
selection and the clipboard is kept the same, so that anything in the
selection is immediately available for pasting elsewhere using any method,
including the traditional middle mouse button. Otherwise, the selection is
recorded in the clipboard history, but the selection can only be pasted using
the middle mouse button. Also see the Ignore selection option. See the section
called “Clipboard/Selection Behavior."
* All selection whatsoever will land in Clipboard manager.
* If you want the selection to be paste-able check "Synchronize contents of
the clipboard and the selection."
* If you don't want clipboard manager to add any and all selection to itself
uncheck Ignore selection option.
After unchecking Ignore selection I no longer see any of the selected entries
in clipboard manager.
I do have to say, based on my limited experience, this ability to add un-
paste-able entries to clipboard manager is very weird. If entries can't be
pasted they aren't really useful.
I guess you could go back later to the clipboard and select the entry.
