“No kidding!” means “that’s obvious” only when intended sarcastically. Its base, original meaning is “I’m not lying to you.”
“Kidding” means telling an untruth, often in jest.

I agree. “No kidding” generally is a statement on the truthfullness of something expressed. If you tell me that you can bench press 400 pounds and I respond with, “No kidding”. I am checking for the validity of your statement. And yes said sarcastically it can mean something that is very obvious, usually even so an idiot could see it is true.
