MDK9.2 - Menu system is not quite right

Some isn't quite right with the menusystem with my download MDK9.2.

It seems that the new installs from RPM sometimes makes it to the menus, and sometimes doesn't. For example, I installed several RPMs and looked for them in the menus. They were not there, but after doing an 'update-menus -v', they were there. I also installed the 2 screensavers RPMs that came with my package. They show up as existing in the 'Configuration-KDE-LookNFeel' menu, but not the "Configure Desktop". That is to say, I can look at them, but cannot invoke any of them as a screensaver.

So.... Shouldn't the menu system automatically update with newly installed packages, as I remember from MDK9.1? Also, how do I get my screensavers to the 'Configure Desktop' menu?
