No. The file does not exist in the repository, it exists only in your
working copy, which means that no-one else can modify it. File locks are
a way to tell other users that a file is being modified, and that makes
no sense for files that do not even exist for other users yet.

That might be a bug on Windows or it might be a bug in your version of
the Subversion client. I've tested this scenario with 1.9.7 on Unix and
the file definitely becomes read-only after the commit.
