Sorry to stress this again (and correct me if I'm wrong), but NO, there is no
penalty in runtime if you install a -dbg package. The binaries you execute,
are not linked to the debugging symbols, so, the system is not clever, it
just does what it normally does.
If and only if the application crashes, drkonqui will start gdb, and gdb will
use the information in /usr/lib/debug/.
