It depends if not installing KDE is accidental, i.e. somebody forgot to add 
the KDE subtask to the desktop task, or if it is intentional, i.e. somebody 
decided not to add the KDE subtask.

Since this is about a Debian installer, I see no reason to believe that it has 
been intentional. Debian developers responsible for base infrastructure do 
not impose personal choices, I am pretty sure such a misbehavior wouldn't be 
tolerated by the rest of them.
