Usually KMAT material type is used to create configurable materials. But it is not mandatory to use the KMAT material type. A custom material type can be used for configurable materials. In this scenario make sure "Material is configurable" is checked on Basic data screen.

The KMAT material type will be used for variant configuration scenario.

Please check the forum for variant configuration steps.
