Just did that and only the one instance of Dolphin was restarted.
This (masking /etc/xdg/autostart/org.kde.dolphin.desktop) is
effective. It eliminates any auto-start copy of Dolphin for me.
Just to double-check, I reinstalled Dolphin, linked to /dev/null as
above, saved the session with the correct number of Dolphin windows,
logged out and logged in again.
I still get an extra window.
