      Description

      Qt UI Compiler (uic.exe) seems to ignore --no-implicit-includes (or -n) command line option. Despite the documented description of the option ("Don't generate any #include directives."), produced C++ header files still contain #includes to Qt classes used in .ui file.

      Example reproduction steps:

      1. Open cmd.
      2. Go to "%QTDIR%\..\..\..\Examples\Qt-5.12.3\qmake\precompile"
      3. Run "%QTDIR%\uic.exe --no-implicit-includes mydialog.ui"

      EXPECTED:
      Generated header file (printed in console) does not contain any #include directives.

      ACTUAL:
      Generated header file (printed in console) contains #include directives:
