Probably you've also got `ebdb-save-on-exit' set to t -- that adds a
save hook to `kill-emacs-hook'. Try setting it to nil.

What you're seeing is the `buffer-offer-save' mechanism, which kicks in
both when you run `save-some-buffers' and before you kill Emacs. So
there's sort of two potential save mechanisms when you exit Emacs. If
that's annoying I could also provide an option for not offering to save
the database.
