Look under
 
Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options\
 
 Interactive logon: Number of previous logons to cache (in case domain controller is not available)

Do you know where it caches mapped drive usernames and passwords?

You could add this to your logon script
 

'Disconnect ALL mapped drives
Dim  WshNetwork
Set WshNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
Set clDrives = WshNetwork.EnumNetworkDrives
For i = 0 to clDrives.Count -1 Step 2
    WSHNetwork.RemoveNetworkDrive clDrives.Item(i), True, True
Next
