If you mean the following snippet:
The menubar is at the top of the Konsole window. It can be hidden and
restored by toggling Show Menubar in the Settings menu. When the
menubar is hidden, Show Menubar can be reached by right clicking in
the window or by Alt+Ctrl+M.
This is not about selecting the menu bar, but about showing/hiding it.

Interestingly, I've found two upstream bug reports about it ,
one claiming that the behaviour is wrong, the other one claiming the
behaviour is correct, and they're both being contradicted
