I am afraid it is.  OpenGrok shows that this flag is only evaluated in 
sd/source/ui/slideshow/ and in 
slideshow/source/engine/ and in both places you are only 
warned that this flag is not supported anymore.

The flag is also mentioned in XSlideShow.idl but only in a comment.

The only think that has to be checked are references in several 
localization files.  Removing the flag might lead to missing translated

Yes, please go ahead.  Can you check the localize.sdf files in 
extras/l10n that contain references to ENABLE_PRESENTER_EXTRA_UI?

For OOo4Kids and OOoLight the situation may be different.  By the way, 
are there any plans to integrate OOo4Kids into Apache OpenOffice (if 
that is possible at all)?
