Most probably for loading the about page, which is part of the webbrowsing profile by default.
If you click on "Introduction" in the about page, and then on the link (to disable_overview) in the 
Tuning Tip paragraph at the bottom, to make konqueror start without the about page, it should
start faster and without starting kio_file.

PS: this isn't a core development question IMHO, please use kde-devel in the future.
