If you choose the KB comments option “Determined by individual article’s comments option” then go to each KB article page to control the comments visibility. Also see WordPress Global Configuration option section on this page.

Note: If you don’t see the Discussion fields, check that you have them enabled in the screen options.

The WordPress global setting for comments is listed under Settings -> Discussion tab in your WordPress admin panel.

This setting only applies to new articles and posts. When a new article is created, its “Allow Comments” option is set based on the following global setting:

☐  Allow people to post comments on new articles

You can override this default value by going to the article edit page.

On the Discussion Settings page you can also control access to comments by logged in users.

The current theme can have its own settings that control whether comments will show on all posts. Check that your theme settings are not overriding the KB comments configuration.
