For some reason when enabling Restore manually saved session in Desktop Session Login and Logout settings, and hitting Save Session from the applications menu - all opened application windows get saved and restored upon login into the KDE session, except google chrome.

I located the session file ~/.config/ksmserverrc and indeed firefox and many other applications are there:

$ grep firefox ~/.config/ksmserverrc
$ grep gkrellm ~/.config/ksmserverrc
$ grep chrome ~/.config/ksmserverrc

as you can see chrome is not there.

And no application has been configured to be excluded:

$ grep excludeApps ~/.config/ksmserverrc

The only unusual thing about chrome, as compared to other applications, perhaps, is that it appears as many threads in the output of ps(1).

I have it installed as:

$ sudo apt-get install google-chrome-stable
google-chrome-stable is already the newest version (69.0.3497.100-1)

My setup: Kubuntu 18.04, Plasma 5.12.6, KDE Frameworks 5.44

    I see what you see. Also, when I opened Google Chrome manually, there was a message about it not being shutdown properly. Maybe you could file a bug report if you have a Launchpad account.

    I can create an account. Would this be the right place to report this issue in, @DKBose?

    Thanks. What I needed help with is to find which package it should be reported for, which the wiki wasn't helpful for - googling I found the right package. Bug report submitted.
