I think I found it in something called kickoffrc:

mark@c2stable ~ $ cat .kde4/share/config/kickoffrc
[Favorites]
FavoriteURLs=/usr/share/applications/firefox.desktop,/usr/share/applications/virtualbox.desktop,/usr/share/applications/vmware-player.desktop,/usr/share/applications/kde4/dolphin.desktop,/usr/share/applications/kde4/konsole.desktop,/usr/share/applications/xine.desktop,/usr/share/applications/ghb.desktop,/usr/share/applications/skype-skype.desktop,/usr/share/applications/kde4/kpat.desktop,/usr/share/applications/kde4/ksnapshot.desktop

[KRunner]
loadAll=false

[KRunner][PlasmaRunnerManager]
pluginWhiteList=places,shell,services,bookmarks,recentdocuments,locations

[RecentlyUsed]
Applications=kde4-konsole.desktop,vmware-player.desktop,skype-skype.desktop,firefox.desktop,virtualbox.desktop
mark@c2stable ~ $

I'll have to study to understand the meaning of things like
'firefox.desktop' though...
