There are some fonts that are visible in kde's font management application that I can't find on my system.
Here's what was already tried: https://forum.manjaro.org/t/location-of-fonts/148996/6

Since fonts can be use system wide (for all users), they need to be in a system wide folder: /usr/share/fonts
But I strongly suggest you do not modify anything in there

FWIW: it is always useful to state the exact Plasma version and distribution when asking questions in this forum, makes it easier for us to help ...

The fonts are installed as System Fonts but some of the fonts that are visible in Kde Font Management aren't in /usr/share/fonts .

Just for example: "Aachen"

But there are more.

Hm, I don't have that one, using just the standard set that comes with my distribution.

Keep in mind that additionally installed fonts can be stored in /opt/, it all depends on how the individual distribution handles user made addons. Also some fonts are not in individual files but are part of bundles

Is there anyway to reveal a font's location in Kde Font Management?

If you hover with the mouse on a font, the tooltip shows you the paths

maybe because the tooltips are not activated by default in your distro?
System Settings -> Workspace -> Workspace Behavior -> Visual Behavior: Display information tooltip on mouse hover

The Display information tooltip on mouse hover box is checked.

Try this: on the upper right, set the filter criteria to "File Location", then hover over the font and wait 2 seconds.

User account-specific fonts might also be found in ~/.fonts
