Could be several reasons;
 how are you sending test requests?
 are they http:// or https:// URLs?
 and what tool(s) are you using to fetch them?

You should know this, but stating it for completeness anyway:

Any traffic allowed by the above lines does not get authenticated at
all. So it cannot have this ACL applied. If your tests URLs resolve to then they will always "fail" tests about user related
things due to this "allow".

>From the documentation for this directive:
 Use a small value (e.g., 60 seconds)
 if your users might change addresses
 quickly, as is the case with dialup.

The above line configures Squid to *ignore* (and discard/replace) IP
address info about a user login if it was added more than 1 minute earlier.

If you want IP to be fixed for long periods, *definitely* set that to a
longer time. I suggest much longer than the discard timer on the
credentials themselves (currently 5min).

(I don't recall right now if it updates/restarts that TTL timer on IP
info for every request related to it. You test result suggests that it
probably does not).

Not related to your question, but important:

This is using OpenSSL support with an outdated Squid version (more than
1 year). The TLS environment and code in Squid is *very* volatile, and
the code in versions older than 3.5.24 has known security
vulnerabilities. Please upgrade. The current 3.5 release is 3.5.27.

(You may also want to check your OpenSSL library version is up to date
