Can the word really mean "kindness" as well as "politeness"?

They are two ways of demonstrating good feelings towards someone. The main translations here are, courtesy or politeness so I think kindness might be an alternative.

I said "courtesy is essential" and it marked it wrong and told me that the correct answer was "politeness is essential" -- these are synonymous.

Yes, actually we had "Courtesy is necessary" Sorry, about that I've added, "Courtesy is essential." Thank you for your contribution.

Unless I'm mistaken, 'courtesy is essential' was marked wrong today.
