It's one of the things I discovered very early in using KDevelop, I'm a bit surprised that it's not a known bug (or known design limitation).
Then again, I presume that the KDevelop devs have the benefit of knowing exactly how to add a default style if they need something different :)

Jokes apart, it should probably be possible to have both session-specific styles and personalised "global" styles. An export feature (and a personal style/template directory) sounds like the way to go.
