a solution using fox:
you could have  a logout  link which opens a page with  a logout form,
basically  a button and a text asking the user to confirnm the logout.
The form itself is a Fox form to update the ptv on the profiles page
with the time stamp. The form will also have a  redirect=  parameter
with a full page url plus ?action=logout, to trigger the actual
logout after the form process, i.e. after the ptv is updated.

The Fox form would look something like this:

(:if equal {$Author} '':)not logged in(:else:)
(:fox logoutform redirect='{$ScriptUrl}?n={*$FullName}?action=logout' :)
(:foxptv Profiles.{$Author} ptvfields=LogoutTime :)
(:input hidden LogoutTime '{$$(ftime %s now)}':)
(:input submit post "Logout":)
(:foxend logoutform:)(:if:)

You may want to use {$AuthId} rather than {$Author}.
Note that we cannot use a foxsuccess message, as we use a redirect.
So to show a message I used a conditional.
The ptv is called 'LogoutTime'.
The time is written as unix timestamp
