3b 2.9
0.25 flop AF
106 hands
What hands would he donk multiway like that? I'm guessing only strong hands, especially for that sizing, maybe because a check/raise looks too strong and he doesn't want that. So 55, QQ, oddly flatted AK, KQ.
I'm not sure he will do that with JT, draws would rather x/c multiway am I right?
On the turn he fires a pretty large bet, looks like value from Kx to me, although maybe a smaller one would work better because he will always get action from Kx. Again don't really see him doing this as a bluff when the top card paired.
Did I break down his actions correctly? Can I still call the turn bet? Looking ahead I see him firing another bet on the river and I certainly can't call that.

He could peel all KXs given the price he is getting pre. AK would 3b pre, so only KQ, KJ, and KT beats us.

Because of this the turn is a clear call and reevaluate on the river.

I would never have folded this. Call and see a river.
If he checks river, value bet 50-70% pot, if you get raised...ugly.. then that's prob a fold
If he makes a normal value bet OTR, I'd call
If he shoves river... ehmmm difficult spot...

If you happen to get a boat OTR, play for stacks.

This villain seems pretty tight/passive, so I understand why you're concerned about this betting action.

However I think that you should call turn and decide on the river, probably leaning towards a fold if he makes a decent-sized bet.

There are worse Kx hands (particularly suited ones as Birdayy pointed out) that he would donklead and keep betting with, but stuff like AQ/JT wouldn't surprise me either as some players of this type occasionally like to take some strange aggressive stands.

To be honest I don't think your fold is a big mistake just given the stats you provided about villain, but calling must be more +EV.
