Unless you can help me find out why that worked with the previous version of the package, and not with this one, I am inclined to believe this is because of changes to dbus itself rather than the packaging. I do not use dolphin, but I do use this package for things like launching dconf-editor as root with sudo, which works--though it should be noted that using sudo with dbus applications is generally recommended against.

If you are using KDE, the most often recommended method I see at first glance (google search of "sudo dolphin dbus" returns mostly results from ~2016, maybe when the [core] package dropped --enable-x11-autolaunch) is

kdesu dbus-launch dolphin

Several posts recommend installing the dbus-x11 package without saying why it worked.

Edit: have a look at the Archwiki page about running GUI applications as root. Much to my surprise the GVFS method worked with my filebrowser (pantheon-files). You might try

dolphin admin:///

Is this package still maintained?

This package enables autolaunch, yet forgot to add libx11 to makedepends ...
