[keycloak-user] Does refreshing the token extend the session?

There is an idle timeout and a max session lifespan and an access token 
timeout.  I don't think we check the max session lifespan when 
generating a token, so an access token might be active for access token 
timeout + max session lifespan.

Our users can jump in and out of our angular app. When they come back in the initialization logic goes to the key cloak server to make sure they are logged in. What our QA team is telling us is after 2-3 hours of clicking on the site the user is no longer logged in, but some of the calls with bearer tokens still go through. We need to know if refreshing the token or doing the 'check-sso' extends the session.
