IMHO no. KMail has the same bug (the mark as todo/important context menus).
In KMail however, KToggleAction::setCheckedState is called for those actions, 
I assume KWrite does the same. Acording to the APIDOX at 
http://www.englishbreakfastnetwork.org/apidocs/apidox-kde-4.0/kdelibs-apidocs/kdeui/html/classKToggleAction.html#22ba13df6bebeacf041574639161aaaf , 
the checkbox should not be shown when KToggleAction::setCheckedState was 
called (" This feature replaces the checkmark that usually appears in front 
of the text, in menus.").
However the checkbox is still shown after the call, which indicates this is a 
bug in KToogleAction.
