I wait for this function since long time... I do not know how to program a plugin, so if I can't find a way to do this before this summer, I will make it in bash script.
Version 1.4.0 of the plugin added support for the Kobo devices. I still need to update the first post completely. And add it to the help.

There are some alternatives:
  • As theducks said, the Kobo Utilities plugin includes a function.
  • Calibre has a a "Fetch annotations" function that gets them and adds them to the comments field.
  • If you add "ExportHighlights=true" to the "FeatureSettings" section of the devices config file, a menu item will be added to the books menu in in the library list on the device to export them as a text file on the device.
  • There have been a few scripts or apps posted in the Kobo forum over the years. A search there should find them.
