Just tested, it works just fine. Bug and patch for OpenRaster support
filed: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=255755

Note that the release of standalone packages for OpenRaster
thumbnailers does not mean we do not seek to get support upstream
where appropriate. See
http://create.freedesktop.org/wiki/OpenRaster/Desktop_Integration for
current status in these matters.
