Run the following. 

Backup the current rights. 
getfacl /usr/local/samba/var/locks/sysvol/mydomain.org.uk > sysvol-before.acl

now, copy (backup) the (domain sysvol)  /usr/local/samba/var/locks/sysvol/mydomain.org.uk 

Now remove all content from 

run sysvol reset. 

Get the rights applies by samba-tool 
getfacl /usr/local/samba/var/locks/sysvol/mydomain.org.uk > sysvol-after.acl

copy the content back to /usr/local/samba/var/locks/sysvol/mydomain.org.uk/ 

reapply the all rights recursive. 

setfacl -R -b -M sysvol-after.acl /usr/local/samba/var/locks/sysvol/mydomain.org.uk

try if that helps fixing sysvol.
