Yes. Kde5 looks in a number of places for its settings, including both
user and system locations. The user locations are probably going to be
in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME, which (from memory, mine is customized and I don't
want to look it up ATM) defaults to ~/.config/share/. The system
location(s) normally default to XDG_CONFIG_SYSTEM (again, from memory,
something close tho), which in turn defaults to /usr/share/.
Some distros change these defaults, however.
See the freedesktop.org common desktop specifications for more.
