Is the work permit my property or my employers property. I paid 3,100 Baht for it.

 

Also, my current work permit has expired. Does it still need to be cancelled before I get a new work permit with a different employer?

 

FYI my extension of stay is completely separate from the WP

A work permit belongs to you.

It will need to be cancelled before a new work permit can be issued.

I believe the blue book with the WP stamps is the employer's property. Might be wrong. But in my case when I quit I got an email from my org asking for it back which I then mailed to them.  I guess they must have canceled it after. I never got it back and didn't see a reason to want it. I assumed that if I worked again, which I didn't, my new employers would issue another blue book.

That is not correct.

The labor ministry has confirmed that many times when employers were wanting to keep them. It belongs to the person whose name is in it.

 

My employer pays for mine.

 

I assume they are the owners, it is kept by me though.

No, it is yours. Of course, the company should pay for it, and your visa, as a foreign expert.

I assume that it is your name in the book even though, as should be the case, the employer paid for it. See @ubonjoe's post. The Labour Department has made clear that the book is yours.
