The logs you are quoting are Network Identity Manager logs.  Network
Identity Manager is an application that runs within the user logon
session.  OpenAFS will always have started prior to the logon session
desktop appears.

Kerberos authentication must always occur after OpenAFS starts.  If
OpenAFS has not started, there is no service with which to register AFS

I suggest you read the OpenAFS for Windows Release Notes that are
installed on your Windows system along with OpenAFS.  In particular,
read the Troubleshooting section.   It describes the various logs used
by OpenAFS and the tools you can use to assist with debugging.
