The conspiracy theory would be that Voynich used sympathetic
ink for the signature so that it couldn't be easily
compared to the original signatures of Tepenecz.

...or that Voynich forged the signature himself, then realised that he had to remove it so as to prevent people checking his modern ink? :-)

It's the fact that a signature (presumably denoting ownership) had been removed *without another being put in its place* that confuses me. Is that normal behaviour for MS owners of this period?
