No not at all. That's exactly as released. We upstream (KDE) are releasing the 
KDE Workspaces (Plasma) as LTS since some time last year (version 4.11.x) and 
the KDE Platform 4 is feature frozen since around 4.9 but still gets version 
increments together with the KDE Applications which are currently at 4.13.1 
(not yet in Debian).

I hope that explains it. Otherwise don't hesitate to ask further.
