There is no KDE Plasma 5.12. Judging by the screenshot, you're referring to KDE Plasma 5.3 or older. In the upcoming KDE Plasma 5.4 release the clock tooltip has slightly improved in terms of "timezones having a different date" as the date will now be just shown by default: I agree that having something with a visual representation of the timezones would ...

Kubuntu is the only distribution that I know which had a setting for mouse scroll. Although, it is possible that any KDE-based distro make this setting available out-of-box.

If it says stretch/sid, you're not actually using debian 8, you're using either stretch (which will become debian 9 in about a year or two) or unstable. Given your predicament, I suspect the latter. Unstable is currently in the midst of a transition to gcc5, which breaks everything C++-related. In addition, the KDE maintainers have decided to use this ...
