That explains my mistake. So the kubuntu package set only covers the KDE
subset from main and allows Kubuntu developers to upload those without
being a core-dev. Any KDE packages that are in universe aren't part of
this package set.
(The same applies for Gnome packages in main and ubuntu-desktop.)

I assumed that the kubuntu package set has a broader scope and covered all
packages that are primarily used on KDE desktops.

Are there any plans/ideas to expand the scope of the kubuntu package set
or will it stay like that forever?

To be honest, I don't know as I seem to not fully understand how we use
package sets currently.

With this new knowledge, I agree with you that someone who works on
KDE/Qt packages in universe should go for MOTU and not be redirected to
