Do you mean that they're receiving receipts for messages sent since they turned receipts off?

Any e-mail sent while Read Receipts was turned on will still return a receipt as this message was told to do so and it has no way of knowing you have changed your settings.

Any messages sent after disabling read receipts should not return any reciepts.

In addition you can change the setting for an individual e-mail when you are writing it.  Therefore it is possible the user turned it off for a single message rather than in the Outlook options.
