I'm trying to move a window a workspace. Is

assign [class="^konsole$" title="^__scratch__"] → scratchpad

sufficient to move a term to the scratchpad?

No, to move a window to the scratch pad you must use for_window. It's unlike other workspaces in that regard,

for_window [class="^konsole$" title="^__scratch__"] move scratchpad

Then you can use i3-msg scratchpad show to see it.
