In Gnome, at least, an icon appears in the taskbar while you've got
temporary root credentials, and you can right-click and keep them
longer, or abandon them immediately.
It's ages since I've used KDE, have a look if something appears when you
authenticate as root to use a configuration GUI tool in KDE.
I seem to recall that you could configure something to do with PAM about
the timing, but only through hand editing configuration files. But it's
been years since I read anything about that.
