Just a data point: I can not reproduce it with X11, emacs-26.3, and Org 
from git main HEAD. Maybe I will try with emacs-27 and Wayland in a few 

emacs -Q -L ~/src/org-mode/lisp/ \
   -l org-protocol --eval '(server-start)' test.org
emacsclient 'org-protocol:/store-link?url=http://o.rg/&title=Tt1'
copy from firefox
C-y (org-yank) in Emacs pastes text that I copied from firefox.

In some aspects your problem looks similar to:

What is the problem with nil there? New-style URIs are parsed before 
they are passed to subprotocol handlers. Why are you trying to call 
org-protocol-store-link directly?
