Is there something similar in KDE? I looked up and down in the Control Center but I don't seem to be able to find it.
What you're looking for is in the Control Centre under Desktop
You can apply a host of different settings for windows to retain their size, position, focus stealing etc, even when maximised.
If the window you want to control is not in the pre-defined list, you can either add it or display the window, then click on the icon in the top left of the titlebar and then select Configure window behaviour
