That's just system-config-date (also called system-config-time), which
as I already pointed out, is available from the Shell and is the same as
the Gnome widget. All of which is beside the point, the point being that
KDE has a System Settings option for Date and Time, and that's where the
user might reasonably expect to be able to set this stuff. Having to go
to a completely different widget borrowed from a different desktop
environment is a bug and has been reported as such.
