I'm a bit disappointed that I do not even get an answer for suggesting what I
think is a rather reasonable use-case.

Assuming the attacker grabs my laptop while the screen is locked, it would be
nice to know that the wallet is closed and hence nothing can be extracted from
RAM.

So, disabling auto-close-on-lock would severely degrade security. 
Auto-open-wallet-on-screen-unlock OTOH does not degrade security as both the
screen lock and the walltet are protected by the same password.

So, I think there is quite an obvious use-case for this and it would
significantly increase security, in particular when the laptop is hardly ever
turned off so all the time "at rest" is spent in suspend.

kwallet_pam only handles initial login.

You have a setting to close the wallet when you lock the screen enabled. You
probably want this off.

Given kwallet's only job is to protect a system that's at rest. I struggle to
see a use case for closing it when you lock the screen in combination with auto
unlock that would provide any security.
