Maybe there something I missing or maybe each year some of the roots die back and introduce the nitrogen to the surrounding soil. either way from my research I have concluded that nitrogen fixing plants are a much more complicated scenario than they are often presented as. I personally will stick to them as cover crops in a cultivated garden or utilize them if they have other redeeming qualities as companion plants but don't paln on wasting much time or space on them just for the sake of thier abilitity to fix nitrogen.
