What is the value of `tramp-completion-function-alist'? What does the

Does it help to call

   '((tramp-parse-shosts "~/.ssh/known_hosts")))

No.  Problem and value of (tramp-get-completion-function "plink") the same.

Is there a difference in methods "plink" and "plinkx" (you seem to use
both methods)?

I use PuTTY for console connections to remote hosts, Cygwin rsync for bulk transfers, plink for tunnelling VNC and Tramp. So in XEmacs I'm using ~/.ssh/known_hosts for the list of hosts but the keys are actually in Pageant/plink. Separate copies of the keys are in the two systems.

plinkx and plink both exhibit the same problem with session/host completion.

The impression that I get is that XEmacs is not delegating completion responsibility to Tramp until the "]" is entered. Or maybe Tramp is matching on a regexp that does not grok incomplete file specifications.
