I can confirm that this is indeed an issue. I think it is caused by that the mu-plugin class-o2-follow.php handling subscribing for Jetpack_Subscriptions but not including any function for unsubscribing. Hence the fix would be to add a function for that.

The Jetpack Subscriptions module and its Jetpack_Subscriptions class do not currently provide a method for users to unsubscribe. As a solution, I propose disabling the "Follow" button once a user follows and displaying a message such as:

To manage your subscriptions, please visit the link in your email or go to Subscription management.

If an alternative method to handle subscriptions without relying on Jetpack_Subscriptions would be available, that would be preferable. However, this approach seems to be our best option for now.
