Any KDE update can require kconf_update scripts, even bugfix releases (and
we also push the minor feature releases). The Firefox profile issue is
known to affect bookmarks between 3.5 beta and RC: the beta can't read the
bookmarks from the RC. I'm sure it'll get upgraded to the final release in
an update. And so on.

You can use preupgrade. It'll fetch the updates before booting into
Anaconda.
