Can this file be read on a non-emulator QL?
Is there a command in Q-Emulator not to add a QDOS header?
The header is ONLY added to the file if required (ie normally an executable file). BASIC files, and code files are easily transported between emulators and QLs. Q-emulator does not offer an option as such not to add a QDOS header (although you can use SBYTES instead of SEXEC) - as the executable file would then no longer be useable.
That is the same issue with any emulators which try to store QL files on native WIndows / Mac folders - what do you do with the QDOS header when it is needed? Some emulators create a second file which contains the header, but that does not help you get the file onto a normal QL.
Q-emulator does of course recognise if you are copying an executable file to a QL formatted disk, disk image, qxl.win file, microdrive image or zip file and write it with the normal file header so anything else can load in from this.
