I owned one diesel engine. I would say the engine siphoned the diesel after it was shut off.
The throttle controls may not be closed. The injectors were tested for their opening and spraying, but were they tested for closing and sealing when off? Diesel fuel lines maintain a vacuum or they get air bubbles. Cooling cylinders create a draw right into the crankcase. Last idea-crankcase vent clogged

It sounds like you need to vent the pipe before the fuel lift pump so the vent is open when the pump is off. That way the fuel can not siphon to the lower tank. Then you would need a valve in sync with the lift pump to close the vent so the pump can draw. Perhaps there is a lift pump with that feature built-in.
