That line is normal.  It means that the addin-in is closing (because you
closed Outlook).  It will be at the end of every log where Outlook closes

And this is definitely not Outlook disabling the plug-in?  i.e. you've
checked Help->About Microsoft Outlook->Disabled Items, and the
Tools->Options->Other->Advanced Options->COM Plug-ins list?

If there is no log, then Outlook is not starting the plug-in, so it has
become unregistered somehow, AFAICT.
