The icon kcm is currently part of the plasma-desktop source package (but it
does not depend on it). I don't know how it is packaged in openSUSE. But see

frameworksintegration is going to be part of plasma, in fact. There would need
to be an "old plasma" integration. Or you can use an alternative system to set
it, like https://sourceforge.net/projects/qt5ct/

Afaik the Gtk+ style is used. There is also this project for a better
integration, see https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/QGnomePlatform
