If you look in the /usr/share/doc/kdeprint/changelog.Debian.gz, you'll see
that the actual changelog distributed with kdeprint _is_ the changelog for
kdebase.  You'd have to ask a KDE developer why this is, but I presume that
the change for kdeprint I picked up this morning is indeed a little more
involved than: "Add kubuntu_62_genkdmconf_fix.diff, closes Malone #39599"
