The copyright holder says it falls under X11 license. The patch for that is a bit more elaborate than replacing KAboutData::License_Artistic, so I hope this gets patched in upstream shortly.

TODO: remove dependencies in kdm and education-desktop-kde.

In package kdebase, the file apps/kdepasswd/kdepasswd.cpp has a notice in the header with an X11 style license:

But the "about" data in the code says that it falls under the (non-free) Artistic License:
