I run both bitcoind and bitcoin-qt calling with
-proxy=127.0.0.1:9050

Is this enough for Bitcoin Core to route any communication through Tor, or does this risk any name resolution or something being queried directly instead of channeled in Tor?

According to doc/tor.md, proxy option sets the proxy for DNS requests; with onion they will not route over Tor. So using -proxy=127.0.0.1:9050 should be enough to route DNS requests through Tor.

You can also use -dns=0 to disable DNS lookups for -addnode, -seednode and -connect values.
