Regular DL users cannot lock discussions. On previous "locked" discussions, the comments were posted before the discussion was "locked".

I once saw a spam post locked. If only mods and staff can lock discussions, why didn't they just delete it?

Because those people posted before the discussion was locked.

I believe that only moderators can lock their discussions - which means to prevent people from commenting on the discussion. In the scenario you mentioned, it's possible that they decided to lock the discussion after getting lots of negative/unrelated comments.
