Why is it recommended that the kiln switches should be turned off before pressing in the Kiln Sitter plunger?

If you press in the plunger with switches still on, the power will arc between the Kiln Sitter contacts. (A switch is designed to open and close an electrical circuit so rapidly that there is no time for the power to arc at the contacts. Pressing in the plunger is much slower.) Arcing can eventually damage the delicate coating on the Kiln Sitter contacts.

Incidentally, if you ever clean the Kiln Sitter contacts, use a pencil eraser. Emery cloth is too abrasive.
