On logout, or more precisely at the end of the startkde script, all scripts 
found in $KDEDIRS/shutdown[1] are run.

You could add such a script that cleans out the RecentDocuments directory 


[1] actually paths are taken from the output of kde4-config --path lib, with 
"lib" replaced with "shutdown"
[2] if $KDEHOME is not set (usually it is not), see kde4-config --localprefix
