Thanks for the info.
On reading through those I noticed the reference to .config/session. My
.config/session had over 82 MBytes of files in there from years of use!
After removing all of them and saving the manual session the next few
logins have been fine. Not sure if there was an issue in .config/session
or its just a random occurrence that it is working now as this
KDE/Plasma session restore has been flaky for a while, but it has worked
for the last few logins for me.

I believe this is a known bug in KDE, and probably one of the most
annoying ones! But from the comments in the bug tracker I got the
feeling that there is currently nobody that is familiar enough with
the code to fix this issue. Also, the code is quite involved, so
nothing a newbie could get quickly on top of.
Some of the bug reports are specific to certain configurations (such
as having an external screen), but in my experience this fails in
other configurations as well. Here are the most promising bug reports
(one of them is 21 years old, but still/again relevant!!!):
