Yes BANK, I DO want to logout!

Is there a simple reason why many (the majority in my experience) of the banks and financial websites ask you to confirm that you want to logout. ie when you click 'logout', they then ask 'are you sure you want to logout?'.
I would have thought that in a highly sensitive site like my banking account, they wouldn't want users to accidentally remain logged in and therefore should take the 1st click as the logout trigger. Asking for confirmation surely leaves chance that the user will miss it and accidentally leave themselves logged in? Plus I find it annoying. But it seems to be common on banking websites but not on shopping sites, etc. Why please?
