KDE and GNOME programs don't typically *have* man pages, because they
all have a Help item in their menubars. Help->Konsole Handbook gives
you the documentation for konsole in HTML, which most people find more
congenial than a man page. YMMV, of course.

Because the full documentation is in the Handbook.

You: How can I do $FOO in xterm?
Thomas: You can't.
Me: You can do $FOO in konsole. konsole does a lot of other things
