Do I not need them to restore from an older backup?

No, signature files are only needed for incremental backup.  Once you've
made a full backup, any previous signature files can be removed.

I ran "duplicity cleanup --extra-clean --force", freed up a gig of old signatures, and verified that I can still restore from a time older than the current full backup.

Thank you!
