No! I didn't find it, I just told you what I did not find, to help you in your search ;)

That's to be expected. OS X's KeyChain does handle multiple chains, but it flattens them for reading (i.e. applications requesting a password don't get to bother about what chain a pw is stored in) and AFAIK will save new passwords in the default chain.
From what I've seen, that's close enough to how kwallet works.
