Of course, getting a knighthood one of the Archducal or Imperial Orders is a goal.
That's sort of the role Knights Retainer fill. All Dukes have the ability to appoint such, and they are effectively Knights within the sphere of influence of their Duke. Just don't appoint too many. The Imperium expects most Knights Retainer to be put up for full Knighthood and be worthy of that, so a House with a lot of them attracts attention...

Past material has already defined Orders of the Domains, and their memberships likely go back to before the Civil War when the Domains were still strong.
We are all playing different games that happen to have the same name.
