 > that the whole 'banned users get logged out' is not functioning properly

 I‘m wondering why you think that such functionality exists? Banning a user
 is just a role/flag which only prevents new logins and password resets.

 To force a logout you always have to change the password otherwise
 existing cookies are still valid.

 Unfortunately WordPress.org doesn’t use sessions ([WP29221]) due to Trac
 not supporting it (and maybe other systems).
