Why do headlights stay on with engine off on my 96 Pontiac bonniville?

If they stay on for a few minutes before turning off, it is a safety feature that many newer model vehicles have. It's to give you light for a few moments in order to get from your car to your doorstep (assuming it's dark). Usually, if you turn off the lights before turning off the engine, the lights will turn off immediately, and if you turn off the engine before turning off the lights, they will stay on to light your way for a few minutes. If your headlights are not turning off at all, your problem is probably either a faulty headlight switch, or a faulty headlight relay.

So you should make sure that you're going to be staying where you are for awhile (probably about 5 minutes+) before turning your engine off is actually a good idea.
