it may be the switch on the steering column that is contoled by a rod from the ignition switch. plastic piece attached to the top of the column under the dash with a wide harness plugged into it. may be worn and the rod isn;t pulling the switch to the right position to kill the ignition.

back in the day, i would sometimes need to shut off the engine in reverse or drive before shifting to park & turning the key to off. run-on does happen.

The starter solenoid is an inexpensive item and can be the cause of what you have described.
