Is qbittorrent.exe using most of the cpu, or is the cpu simply overloaded while running qBitTorrent?

Bad drivers or poorly-written antivirus software may have high cpu usage only when qBitTorrent is running.

It could still be a networking driver issue...but antivirus issues are probably ruled out.

Does any other BitTorrent client (like Transmission on Mac) also show high CPU issues?

i only use this one and this one had no problems either for years. mac networking drivers doesn't change by itself and i certainly haven't touched it

Back up qBT's settings and .torrent files and reinstall fresh.

If that works, try with just your .torrent files and slowly change qBT's settings till it messes up again...that way maybe the programmers can know what to fix.

And windows or a virus/trojan/malware/random power glitch could've corrupted them slightly causing these problems even if you haven't touched the settings.

...That's assuming the cause isn't a bug in qBitTorrent!
If it is a bug, all the more reason to back up the settings and check!
