For certain files these user need to use locks. They can successfully acquire locks, make changes, and commit those changes (automatically releasing the locks). When they apply the no-unlock option to svn commit, however, they receive the following messages:

That's a good question. It would probably help if you were able to
create a reduced test case (starting from a blank repository), or at the
very least posted your authz file.

The --no-unlock switch to commit doesn't really do very much, it just
skips the unlock step that normally happens after committing with lock
tokens held. You didn't say whether or not users can run 'svn unlock'
