IIUC, you're mis-interpreting the YUM output there. NetworkManager-gnome
doesn't have a dependancy on KDE, rather it happens to be part of the 
"KDE (K Desktop Environment)"  group. ie in doing a 'groupremove'
you explicitly asked YUM to remove 'NetworkManager-gnome' since its
in that group. If you had just done an package level remove, eg 
'yum remove kde*' then NetworkManager-gnome would not have been removed
