I think DA:O actually established the fact that Qunari have horns, and Sten was sent to investigate the south specifically because he could fit in more easily. Of course, all the Qunari mercenaries you fought didn't have them easier, but I'm thinking that was just a time issue.
I recall reading that it was a retcon. The DA wiki says it was intended
but left out because it interfered with Sten wearing a helmet. The Codex entry for Sten doesn't mention him being special this way and the entry for Qunari starts with...
Anyone who travels far enough to the north will eventually encounter the Qunari: White-haired, bronze-skinned giants, a head again taller than a man, with frighteningly calm demeanors and a sort of sparkling fire behind their eyes.
...which would seem the time to say "Oh, and they have horns." None of Sten's dialogue mentions it either. I think they just skipped the horn idea entirely in DA:O and retconned the idea back into DA2.
