There have a similar 'feel' but the riff, melody and chord sequence are different enough to have me thinking that Mick and Keef won't be looking over their collective shoulders...

FWIW Paint it Black was released in May 1966* while Bir Eylül Akşamı was not released until 1967**

It's easy to spot similarities in production and songwriting techniques but much of this is related to contemporary norms dictated by available hardware and work practices which would have been invisible assumptions at the time. I'm noticing the same phenomenon now in music I grew up with which sounded quite diverse at the time.

In a few years we will be doing the same with today's offerings.

Also, there are a limited number of options in any "style" before you begin to sound inauthentic donut shouldn't surprise us that similarities occur.

Do yourself a favour, wear earplugs at gigs.
