Settings -> Configure digiKam -> Editing Images

a) Tick 'Always show original images'
b) Un-tick 'Enable Non-Destructive Editing and Versioning'

I have not actually tried this and am not sure that it will do what you 
want but it is what I would try.

Mind you saving a versioned jpg from an original png sounds like a bug 
in the non-destructive editing code to me.
