It's also possible that even if you can break a contract (which is dubious), it's harder to break a bigger contract than a smaller one. A contract for 1,000 shmuckers might be exponentially easier to break than one for 100,000.
In addition, carnymancy often involves making a "trade". Breaking the rules comes with a pretty steep consequence sometimes. So breaking a contract might have some horrific cost, rather than just being a free way to get out of a deal.
I doubt carnymancers *would* break contracts. It's just not their style. I see them as being like an evil genie who will give somebody *exactly* what they ask for, but in an unexpectedly negative way. It could be that they appreciate rules and contracts, just so that they could have something to twist around.
One recurring theme I've noticed is that casters seem to have a unique appreciation for whatever is the opposite of their discipline. Jack the foolamancer was very alert and aware of his surroundings; Wanda the croakamancer has shown an appreciation for life that was unheard of in its scope. Maybe there's something about a carnymancer's ability and inclination to break rules that gives them a unique perspective on the matter of defying a contract.
And a Signamancer would probably be the opposite of a Carny.
