Your best bet is to subscribe to this bug, and maybe leave a comment
offering your work-around:

As others have said, this is a packaging problem in Ubuntu, and can't
be fixed by Amarok developers. The usual approach for media playback
in Ubuntu is to recognise missing the codec and allow you to install
it when you first try to play an MP3 file. It appears this
functionality has not been patched into their Amarok build.
