Is everyone patched to 8.0.1? Are these actually CS6 files that are
being opened or files created in earlier versions?
Some will be created in older versions, while some will have been created in CS6. Yes everyone is patched.
There will be no lock file for an earlier version until it's saved as a
As for the rest, that sounds like a permissions issue on the server.
Ah okay that makes sense. Any particular reason this happens?
Wouldn't it be an issue with no IDLK file existing, therefore nothing stopping somebody opening the same file?

When you open a file from a previous version (you'll see converted in
the file name) there is no CS6 file in existence, yet. Once the file is
saved as a CS6 file, the lock file is created. The whole procedure is
designed so that you must make a fully conscious decision to overwrite
the old version file with a new one.
This is no different than creating a new document that hasn't been saved
