Graphics and Multimedia.   Hmm not entirely sure what is from kde and what is 
from extragear.

Well Debian and ubunto don't and I am pretty sure RedHat doesn't.  And Suse 
does there own voodoo of having submenus for each type of application so I 
guess they get points.  Like people, distros are lazy and will use whatever 
we give them.  To assume that they wont include any apps other then what kde 
has would be silly.
