I have no explanation. :) I can reproduce the behaviour you described in KDE 3.5.10, so it did exist at some point but may now have been fixed (or not). However, I should probably note that I get the "Extract" option replacing "Compress" only if all the files I select are recognized as being compressed--if I select, say, two .zip files and a .txt, the "Compress" option remains available.
