It looks like Konqueror uses Documents as its default download
directory. There's an outstanding issue on the KDE bug tracker:

"I have set the standard paths in systemsettings for downloaded files to
/home/user/Downloads and Konqueror does not recognize this. It always
wants to save downloaded files to /home/user/Documents."

So it's not just you, it's an upstream issue.
