Tshering would give a better answer, but no harm is, or has been done by either program. Koreader makes no changes to the Kobo supplied code. KSM makes a tiny addition to the Kobo startup code, that has caused no impact on any of the code that Kobo uses.

KSM provides options to handle updates, including updates to the firmware, one of the update handling options allows you to do the update, while not effecting the KSM installation. So, using that option, everything should persist through a Firmware update. And now, with all the code for kbmenu, koreader, and any other added software, placed in the new .adds directory, those programs should also remain unaffected (as well as the relationships between them).
