Content edit locking feature is to prevent simultaneous conflicting edits of the same content. If the editor forgot to press Save or Cancel explicit unlocking must be performed on locked objects if you want to modify them.
Volto provides support for Plone's locking feature, but you need to enable the
plone.locking behavior on your Dexterity content types first. You can do that in Plone's control panel or using the Generic Setup facilities.
