So, here is what I did to solve this problem. Thanks for this
suggestion. Now I do understand how this thing with the dhandler works.

I moved! my images into a subfolder called hiddensource. The image-file
may not exist in the original folder anymore!
So /NoAuth/plugin/images/sample.jpg is now located in

Then I created the dhandler file in /NoAuth/plugin/images/. Its content
use File::Basename;
my $arg = $m->dhandler_arg;
my $file = dirname($m->current_comp->source_file) . '/hiddensource/'.
RT::Interface::Web->SendStaticFile( File => $file );


To make sure that the files in hiddensource are not accessed via the
browser from outside, because this might cause a security flaw, I also
had to adjust my Apache Server.
<LocationMatch /NoAuth/.*/?hiddensource/>
   Order deny,allow
   Deny from all

This can be done in a .htaccess-file in the hiddensource subfolder or in
the main config where you configure apache for your RT.

So my sample.jpg will be accessible via /NoAuth/plugin/images/sample.jpg
and will not be interpreted by Mason. But nobody can access it
via /NoAuth/plugin/images/hiddensource/sample.jpg

I hope this will help somebody else. Thanks to everybody for the
support. :)
