Well, the only place I can see where you set it is in Prefs - and I'm guessing you have told it to save the setting.

I see there is a Settings button on that dialogue that allows you to access saved settings, so they must be held somewhere.

In LXDE it uses lxrandr to handle the display setting - not sure about lxqt.

A quick search reveals it may use xrandr in which case this may help https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/xrandr

Sorry but I do not use lxqt so cannot make any other suggestion.

Maybe I should send you 20K dollars and you can rewrite the openbox idiots code for monitors.
Check one. Kill/delete the other options. ?
