Not sure if I understand the question correctly, but all kinds of file locking
used in KDE are for the purpose of safe-guarding against concurrent writing to
the same file.
Without any kind of externally enforced single access mechanism such as file
locking, two processes working on the same on-disk data would otherwise easily
overwrite each others changes.
