I believe you will have to set up separate templates and then just choose the correct template in the subject drop-down menu after selecting the email account.
Does the sig file work for the primary account?
If so then I would agree that the feature just does not work as expected for additional accounts and Jon's suggestion is the best work around.
I actually got it to work. I didn't want to make the user have to pick the template manually. That is an error waiting to happen.
By testing scenarios I discovered that you can not have a default template assigned and have a sig file at the same time. When I did that my GoldMine crashed when I hit send.
So I put the default email templates back to None for New and Reply. Then I created the signature files and added them to each account in the user's options.
I've used the signature files in conjunction with email templates for customers. I just inserted the signature file into the email template, which adds the following code:
So you can have different email templates for New, Reply and Forward but the footer of each template includes the signature file for the specific email account.

And another option is to use the <<file:>> expression at the bottom of your template(s). I use this on my GoldMine that I use for Toastmasters. It checks the field UTMRECORD for Yes and if so uses my Toastmasters signature, otherwise it uses my regular one.
<<file: contact2->utmrecord = "Yes" ?C:\ProgramData\GoldMine\SigFiles\Toastmasters-Area-Director.txt>>
<<file: empty(contact2->utmrecord) .or. upper(contact2->utmrecord) = "NO" ?C:\ProgramData\GoldMine\SigFiles\paul.sig>>
Hey Paul I like your idea. Since I work for a few GoldMine var's. I have to keep right mouse and change the corret email online to be the default.
And you can guess sometimes I forget and the client gets the wrong var from.
I am going to test yours.
