KDE has a vast set of configuration options - I'm not at all surprised you can't find this!

Fire up System Settings, and click on Application Appearance. enter image description here

Now click on Icons: enter image description here

And choose All Icons: enter image description here

Now click Set Effect for the "Active" icons at the bottom. You should see: enter image description here

It sounds like you want the icons to change color when they're highlighted, so try playing with the settings for Colorize.
