I have installed a fresh KDE desktop environment and without any changes in
settings can confirm that power cord pull out and plug in change battery icon
and display a popup message about the corresponding event.
So it is about your machine and KDE.

Look at Applications-Settings-System Settings-Advanced tab-Power Management .

I repeat my invitation to a Gnome desktop - you will be glad you did it :-) .
System-Preferences-Power Management .
