Documents is part of the XDG standards. I don't care for that default location either. :)

Regardless, the location information is stored in $HOME/.config/user-dirs.dirs.

Check whether KControl is updating that file.

If not then edit user-dirs.dirs manually and restart the session. See how kdialog behaves after that.

Could be a bug in KControl.
