I don't know if the "KDE Printer Control Module" also
uses cups-pk-helper.

Regarding cups-pk-helper, see
http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/cups-pk-helper/
"cups-pk-helper is a PolicyKit helper to configure
cups with fine-grained privileges."

If the issue is related to cups-pk-helper, the root cause could be
that those fine-grained PolicyKit privileges must be restrictive
by default, compare bnc#752454

But the initial comment#0 here is not about whether or not
the root password is requested at all but that this password
is requested twice and that could be an issue only in
the "KDE Printer Control Module" - i.e. an issue
in that KDE module.

Please do not mix up different issues (even if they look similar
they are actually different) in one same bug because usually then
it gets moved around for some time and finally it ends up nowhere.
