Let's try the other way:  If you reboot in the dock, everything is OK on
the external monitors, correct.

What happens when you removed the laptop from the dock?  Black screen on
laptop?  If so, try opening the Monitor control before removing from the
dock.  You should be able to 1) turn on the laptop screen and 2) turn
off the monitors.  Now remove from dock. Do you still have a desktop on
the laptop screen?
