KML: 3D export appears 2D

I am using GRASS' v.out.ogr to export to KML (before that I have extruded 2D polygons to 3D with v.extrude and height= parameter, in NVIZ they are 3D blocks). However, the resulting view in Google Earth is 2D buildings.
Hacking manually in <altitudeMode>absolute</altitudeMode> into each <Polygon> tag, I achieve 3D view. Is it possible that <altitudeMode> is lacking in the KML driver?
Secondly, the exported 3D blocks are flying over the terrain, probably a WGS84 vs. sphere (or whatever GE uses!) problem. But the distance 3D block to terrain looks similar to the height of the block itself.
Attached two screenshots.
