  Short story: yes, it is used, silently by all the *i18n* calls which take this definition as first argument (hidden behind a macro that any *i18n* calls is). For kate & kwrite you do not see that, as there is a default catalog defined per application, and both kate & kwrite set that using `KLocalizedString::setApplicationDomain("fooapp");`.And for libs & plugins `TRANSLATION_DOMAIN` allows to overwrite the default catalog in that macro-magic ways in each translation look-up call.
  If you want to get more familiar, please see https://api.kde.org/frameworks/ki18n/html/prg_guide.html#link_cat
