Starts instantly here. No idea on the dependencies. As by default it 
appears to automatically determine the location you are in, there might 
be some geo location related dependencies. I wonder how that works and 
whether it would phone into the internet for that and how often it would 
do that. However I trust that KDE developers implemented it with privacy 
in mind.

The KCM is directly in plasma-desktop package, and this depends on a lot 
of libraries and other packages that may depend on even more packages.

% dpkg -S /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/plugins/kcms/kcm_nightcolor.so
plasma-desktop: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/plugins/kcms/

As for the indication in system tray, AFAIK that is coming with Plasma 
5.18 LTS. But in the evening you can see that it is effective. :)
