You shouldn't have any Qt files in /usr/lib at all. Since it's multiarch, you should have a symlink in the subfolder for your arch, such as

/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libQt5Core.so.5

which is a symlink to

/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libQt5Core.so.5.10

which in turn is a symlink to

/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libQt5Core.so.5.10.1

Both /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libQt5Core.so.5 and /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libQt5Core.so.5.10 are set as symlinks to /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libQt5Core.so.5.10.1

Should I change ...5 to point to 5.10?

I backed things up, tried repointing these symlinks and then switched them back as it made no difference. Anybody have any other suggestions?

If it's a systemic problem, you wouldn't be able to run any Qt 5 apps at all...such as VLC. Is that the case?

Right. VLC will not run, nor Brewtarget, nor Beersmith, nor qbittorrent
