I'd hit a long shot and suggest that KMail offers auto-completion based on
data from your address book and well as recently entered addresses. I feel
you pain as I suffered from the very same behaviour.

In browsers you can typically scroll down and hit delete to erase historical
values. I doubt whether you can do that in KMail (definitely not in my
outdates version of it anyway). Have you considered resetting or
re-creating your identity/profile perhaps? It's probably a very radical
solution if all you need to remove is a single E-mail address.
