Keep in mind: the openafs client will ignore cached data if it was
stored in the cache "soon" before shutting down. If you're running a
test like this and you're rebooting immediately after reading data, that
can be the cause; just wait a few minutes before rebooting if you're
running tests.

However, it does look like that may not be the reason here:

According to this, you're only supposed to have 14821 cache files, but
afsd is finding a lot more than that, so it's deleting the extra ones.
Did you change any of the configuration between boots? Do you see these
messages every time you start up afsd? (the "Deleting '/var/cache...'"

After you start up afsd, does the file /var/cache/openafs/D8/V16847
