Bug report #15854
wmts servers shouldn't re-try 4xx http responses

if a tile is inside the bounding box of a layer on a wmts service but the server responded to a getTile request with a 4xx type error message (i.e. 404 or 403) qgis will retry the tile request. This is likely caused by ambiguity in the wmts spec which neglects to specify what should happen if non rectangular bounding boxes were to exist, but the best thing for qgis to do would be to follow what the http error codes suggest and not retry requests that will fail again.
