K-30, lower pixel pitch than K-5 and K-01?

Or is it DxO's mistake?

K-30: 3.18Ám
K-01: 4.8Ám
K-5: 4.81Ám

See under 'Specs':

Yes. DXOmark has made an error.

The calculation they done is wrong. 23.7mm / 4936 pixels = 4.8um pitch. They have not used the width of the sensor, but height (15.7/4936 = 3.18um).
