Yes. You can set these directly in fonts.conf. See the fontconfig
documentation for more details.
The way the settings daemon works, is that it sets these values as
XSettings on the root window, so anything running on your dislpay which
supports the XSettings spec and those specific settings, will handle
them. GTK+ and QT of course, both do this, which is why the KDE apps you
are running, get the same font settings for rendering quality.
