Correct, you would need a pseudo file in kmenu-dir, such as how I did xmms2:

ExePath: bin/xmms2
ExeIcon: xmms2-128.png
ExeDescr: xmms2
ExeNoDesktop: 1
ExeNoMenu: 1
ExeRunRoot: 0
ExeRunShell: 0
ExeNotify: 1
ExeLink: 0
ExeWebLink: 0
ExeTaskbar: 0
ExeOwndir: 2
ExeKdeCat: Multimedia

By Setting ExeNoDesktop and ExeNoMenu to :1, I disabled creating any 
icons for them, but the .sbin entry still gets created. This is useful 
for apps that need a command-line program available, but you don't want 
to clutter up the desktop with useless links.
