Kindly go through the below documented KBA on the lock issue for simultaneous goods movement posting:
2528025 - M3897 for non valuated material 

As mentioned, The lock is not only necessary to avoid quantity inconsistencies caused by parallel goods movements but it also prevents changes to the material master. There is information on plant level that would have a hazardous impact if changed during a goods movement. 

Also, in order to avoid inconsistencies the Table MARC will be locked, this is as per system standard behavior.
