We're using the xfce4-panel inside an LXDE session, so the "Action Buttons" panel plugin doesn't work as it requires an xfce4-session.

You can however add a launcher for "peppermint-logout" if you wish, FocusPocus wrote a tutorial for this:
https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,3728.0.html

I couldn't see the point of duplicating the functionality of the logout button in the whiskermenu at the expense of panel space (which can be at a premium on small screens such as netbooks) .. so we did away with the panel logout button by default.
