To state a not-so-popular analogy, kobjects can also be viewed as root
object in object oriented programming. So a bit like java.lang.Object.
Of course it is not a root object and indeed C is not OO, but this
view helps in thinking about it.
This section from ldd3 lists some of the tasks handled by kobject:

ultimately encapsulates (inherits from) kobject will have those tasks
handled for it for free. This view is in addition to others expressed
