[Note that I run live-git-master for kde frameworks/plasma. With
frameworks/plasma's active development 22.04 was some time ago, so the
names/locations/etc I describe below might not quite match what you see.]
I believe that's part of the plasma style settings. Look in kde-plasma's
systemsettings under appearance, plasma style, load it directly with
kcmshell5 desktoptheme, or type a keyword such as style or theme into
krunner and pick plasma style from there.
You can choose one of the pre-shipped styles or use the GHNS (get hot new
stuff, in this case get new global themes) button to find an appropriate
user-created style to download.
FWIW, I still like and normally run the KTrans (=transparent) style (then
called theme) I downloaded back in early kde4 times (when
(semi-)transparent was the latest new thing but kde itself only shipped
with semi-transparent plasma themes), as I really like its 100%
transparent backgrounds. The ktrans text/icon color is white, so
nominally it works best with dark wallpaper. However, with kwin's fade-
inactive effect configured, as long as something other than the desktop
itself is active, that seems to fade even pure white wallpapers enough
that the white-on-clear is readable. YMMV.
