Moving of read only files under user security is allowed?

smbusers has
root = administrator admin
nobody = guest pcguest smbguest

Maybe I explained it wrong:

      temp      dr-xr-xr-x
          testing    -r--r--r--
      writedir  dr-xr-xr-x

   Moving the idividual file is prohibited (even on my system)
   temp into writedir as a move, but only allow it as a copy to end up with:

      temp      dr-xr-xr-x
          testing    -r--r--r--
      writedir  drwxrwxr-x
          temp      dr-xr-xr-x
              testing    -r--r--r--
