What do you mean by "logout"? There's no way to "logout".

The signing digest is installed after the first user successfully
authenticates. Subsequent users with different credentials will still
use the first digest. That's the way the protocol works. The server is
doing the same thing.

When the transport times out and closes the digest should be
uninstalled. A subsequent authentication should install a new digest.

If you are seeing signature errors, please provide a more detailed
description of the sequence of events that cause them. Perhaps the signing
digest is not being uninstalled in a particular use scenario?  I don't
understand the "logon" and "logoff" part. Theres an SmbSession.logon()
method but AFAIK there's no "logoff" method.

Have you made any modifications to the stock code?
