The D-Bus viewer and other similar tools like qdbus do not use these files to 
determine a target application's capabilities, but rather ask the application 
to provide the data at runtime, so called introspection.

For whatever reason it seems that Konsole's D-Bus objects do not do this 

You can of course still use these files to determine the methods and their 
arguments manually, though some of the tools attempt to verify arguments 
based on the introspection and will then fail an actually valid call.

If you could check with qdbus if the objects are not introspectable for it as 
well, you could file a bug report against Konsole.
