Ah, this makes sense. Thank you for pointing out what I clearly missed in the quote.
So KS was a scribal shorthand for Kurios, which is firmly believed to have been in the original writings. I suppose my next question would be, was this common in this period? Do we see the same thing in the LXX? Or is this a peculiar practice with the transmission of the NT?
