Squid will not change the content of the cookies (although it's possible it 
could remove them, depending on the configuration).

Does the server perhaps set a default session expiry time of 15 minutes in the 
absence of a cookie, and 180 minutes when the cookie is present?

Have you tried performing a packet capture, on either the client-facing or 
server-facing side of the Squid proxy, to see whether the cookies are getting 
passed through?

Never automate fully anything that does not have a manual override capability. 
Never design anything that cannot work under degraded conditions in emergency.
