kcm-grub2 does not work from unprivileged user

When I open KDE Control Center -> Startup and Shutdown, select the "GRUB2 Bootloader", change anything (e.g. timeout value) and click the Apply button, I get no root password request. The button Apply simply becomes disabled, as if everything was successfully saved, but the system configuration remains unchanged (of course, it's impossible to change it with normal user privileges).
In the journalctl the following lines are added:
Jan 16 15:44:29 stas-Lenovo-U310 dbus: [system] Activating service name='org.kde.kcontrol.kcmgrub2' (using servicehelper)
Jan 16 15:44:29 stas-Lenovo-U310 dbus: [system] Activated service 'org.kde.kcontrol.kcmgrub2' failed: Failed to execute program org.kde.kcontrol.kcmgrub2: Success
