I can think of only one other approach that, I think,  will do what you
want. Use the Notation package.

In[1]:=
Needs["Utilities`Notation`"]

In[2]:=
Symbolize[NotationBoxTag[SubscriptBox[k, t_]]]

In[3]:=
k\[UnderBracket]Subscript\[UnderBracket]3 = 3

Out[3]=
3

In[4]:=
k\[UnderBracket]Subscript\[UnderBracket]5 = 7

Out[4]=
7

In[5]:=
Clear["k\[UnderBracket]Subscript\[UnderBracket]*"]

In[6]:=
k\[UnderBracket]Subscript\[UnderBracket]3

Out[6]=
k\[UnderBracket]Subscript\[UnderBracket]3

In[7]:=
k\[UnderBracket]Subscript\[UnderBracket]5

Out[7]=
k\[UnderBracket]Subscript\[UnderBracket]5

(I converted all the cells to Input or Output forms for greater legibility).
You can now use wile card * in Clear, provided you use the symbol name (a
String) as in In[5] above. Does this do what you wanted?
