Default [Q] Wireless charging?

Are the Korean models (I have the S) wireless-charging-capable out of the box?

I tried wireless charging with the Nokia Qi charging base, but it didn't work... no matter how much positioning.

I thought it is supposed to work, and the battery cover certainly looks like it has the charing receiver in place.

(And note that I'm talking about the phone itself, not the phone with the the Quick Circle cover)

S is not wireless capable out of box, the back cover only has NFC.

I have the S also, just added the Quick Circle Cover, now it is Qi capable.

Can you remove the flap part (maybe cut if off) and have just the back cover? (and have it look relatively normal, not like a coyote ripped off half of your phone case with its teeth)

Yes you can just cut the flap off with a sharp knife.
But if that's what you want, you can just order the G3 Slim Hard Case? They even sell this case cheaper the the Quick Circle Cover.
