I am experiencing long boot up times that occur after logging in
and out of two different accounts before shutting down the computer.
One account is as user and the other as administrator.

If I only log in and out of one account, all is fine.

Does anyone know if this is expected and normal behavior for the
operating system?

Is there a way to prevent Prefetch and Readyboot from creating a
new boot plan each time the operating system loads?

a lot probably depends on the system, and how many start up programs in each account. It doesnt take long on mine, but I have virtually no start up accounts and almost never use my admin account. If its a slower computer, and you have a lot of start up programs it can take a bit. If you are logged in as 2 different people, thats twice as much stuff for a computer to shut down when you go to shut down-and if you have a lot of programs running, that can suck up resources. but like I said, a lot depends on the system your running, and how many programs in each, and whether or not malwares present or not. There is a lot of variables here, I would need more information to give you a definite answer. Like what kind of computer are you running, and how many start up programs you are running in each account.
