If you mean the address-option (for each signature) in the Signatures 
preferences pane then you have misunderstood the feature. This list of 
addresses can be used to lock a signature to specific identities (your 
identities), e.g., to make sure that a business signature is only used 
(available in the composer) when sending from your business email

It is described here, but it was written before the “addresses” 
feature was added: https://manual.mailmate-app.com/compose#signatures

As described in the manual, the fallback is MailMate trying to determine 
what you most often do when an explicit choice does not exist. The 
reason it might give a different result on two different machines is 
that MailMate can only look at the previous choices done on the same 
machine (since the choice is currently only saved locally).

If you need a clean start then you can always use “Reset Usage 
History” in the Signatures preferences pane.
