There must be something you are doing wrong. This work and it does that already since quite some time, so definitely in 2.4.2.
You could have a look at KDE4Macros.cmake (macro KDE4_ADD_UI_FILES) and kde4uic.cmake in KDE svn, which do just that.
In kde4uic.cmake a generated source file is read and stuff is replaced using STRING(REGEX REPLACE ...)
