The top flight club thought they had the lead four minutes later when Yunus Malli swept home but the goal was overturned after a VAR review.
Divock Origi was clearly offside and obstructing the goalkeeper's view. Despite the absence of playmaker Dominick Drexler, Kiel's composure and confidence grew as the half went on and they created a series of half chances, but were unable to convert.
The men in blue did at least put the ball in the net in the 37th minute but an earlier foul on Wolfsburg keeper Koen Casteels meant that one didn't count either.
The game lost some momentum as it edged towards the break, though Origi did produce a fizzing long range drive that stung the palms of Kenneth Kronholm in the home goal.
From the resulting corner, the ball struck Uduokhai's arm but Kiel's penalty pleas fell on deaf ears. Though they often threatened, the home side failed to create a genuine clear cut chance and were made to pay for a lapse of concentration with 15 minutes remaining.
Wolfsburg skipper Maxi Arnold swung in a corner and Knoche arrived late and unmarked to power a free header home and allow Labaddia a sigh of relief.
Though there were tears at the whistle, Kiel are unlikely to be too disheartened by missing out on a second successive promotion after an exceptional season, while the Wolves can lick their wounds before attempting to reclaim former glories again next term.
One last long ball over the top, Koen Casteels scoops it up, and the referee calls time on a failed fairytale in Kiel.
The hosts gave Wolfsburg quite a game, despite the rather one-sided story showing on the score board. They're singing their side out in style after an improbable season: Almost seems too few.
Anyway, Kiel need three! Handball given against Cichos in the kerfuffle on the goal line. Markus Anfang did not look amused.
Fortunately we don't have an in-house lipreader! It's Raphael Cichos, the captain and defender up from the back for a corner.
Although, it might be chalked up as a William own goal? A few minutes ago, Yunus Malli made way for Ignacio Camacho. He was set through by Arnold, and his touch let him down, turning what should have been an easy one-on-one into an off-balance lunge to get a shot away.
The playmaker didn't lay any on at all during the league season. The captain went to take it, and picked out the big defender Knoche in the box.
Arriving all-but-unmarked, Knoche headed powerfully into the ground and ultimately into Kronholm's net. His left-footed shot is parried by Kronholm in goal.
Markus Anfang gesticulates animatedly at his watch, suggesting the Wolves might be playing for time already. Hard-fought from the get-go, the game has taken a turn towards the vicious in the last few minutes.
But the ref's just given Wolfsburg a corner, which comes to nothing. Kiel still looking for the truly iron-clad chance to open the scoring.
You feel that if they're planning on the miracle, it's almost time to go to work. Herrmann finds Seydel in the box with a low cross, and the lanky lad tries to back-heel the ball home.
Casteels was able to block the improvised shot. Both sides are playing with an intensity to match the occasion. Wolfsburg's attackers, in particular, are working hard without the ball to close down space as Kiel try to build from the back.
Wolfsburg and Kiel with a wide open affair Kiel fail to capitalise from towards the end of the second half Wolfsburg with a decisive lead Wolfsburg vs Holstein Kiel Goals: Wolfsburg vs Holstein Kiel — Man of the Match: Josip Brekalo 21 The Croatian winger was fantastic for Wolfsburg.
