No, this isn't a bug. You cannot overwrite a package from a different
package base. What you can do is:

1. Rename the sddm-qt5-git package without changing its package base:


   This might also require some "$pkgname" references to be replaced by
   "$pkgbase" in order to successfully build a new package.

2. Submit the updated package to the AUR. This will result in the
   package name changing from sddm-qt5-git to sddm-qt5-git-old.

3. Upload the new split package.

4. Request the old (renamed) package (sddm-qt5-git-old) to be merged
   into the new one.

Please read both [1] and [2] for details.
