The Debian policy demands that every binary (every kde application, for
example) should have a manpage. If a package doesn't provide one, it is
considered a bug, but packages use to have bugs :-), so help in solving that
bugs, is welcomed.

The documentation in the khelpcenter, is optional in a kde debian package, so
if you file a bug report in bugs.debian.org, I suppose that developers will
just forward that wishlist to upstream mantainers. There are many
applications that need help in updating, translating, and writing such
documentation, but this is not Debian packager's fault.
If you want to contribute, you don't need any special skill. Read that short
