I have no idea where to begin for fixing this.

Example:
»Du willst also deinen Plan ausführen?«
»Allerdings. Ich habe mich vor Monaten dazu entschlossen und meine Meinung nicht geändert.«

It looks like this both on Calibre ebook viewer and Onyx Boox Note 2.

I appreciate the help

The reading applications and device should be showing whatever is in the book. And according to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quotation_mark#German, that is a valid way of doing quotes in German. If you want something different, you will need to edit it and change to the desired quotation marks. It should be a simple find-and-replace.
