I don think that's a bug. If you have a preferred player, it wouldn't be nice that anytime that you install another, it changes.
There are many players in GNU/Linux, and many of them are based on KDE. I have around 4 installed, and I use it in different situations. I'm sure that Noatun isn't the better one, but it's the default for the KDE package, maybe because for most people is enough.
Anyway, you can ask the developers of KDE for that improvement if you think it would be a good thing, in https://bugs.kde.org
PD: Sorry for my english, I'm not native speaker.

I wonder why vlc or kaffine are not put on top of file
After making a fresh install of debian/kde, noatun is the default
Then, I install vlc and kaffeine and amarok. Why are them not put
top of the file associations? Is this a feature or a bug?
