ls $KDEDIR/etc/xdg has tons of examples, what's harder is to translate that 
into a "bug report" if one is not found... 
Well, maybe the colors subdir. Start kcolorchooser and check if the topright 
combo offers a number of predefined named palettes like "Forty Colors".

Again, there aren't unittests for everything. In particular, I'm pretty sure 
there are no unittests for whether some app finds it installed config files, 
especially since unittests are supposed to be run before make install 
("supposed", I know some that break in such situations, but that's a bug).
