Your(?) code sets qt-privacy-ask to false when the dialog finishes, then saves 
the configuration.

I understand that conceptually, first run and privacy asking are different. But 
in practice the two settings were just doing the same (and always had the same 
value unless you edit the preferences).

Admittedly, there may be a corner case if VLC is opened again before the 
dialog completes. But I think showing the dialog again is no worse than 
failing silently. Even then, we would not need IsFirstRun to restore the 
silent failure semantics.
