      The Entity currently known as johnnytcyberwayc emitted:

      On a Linux system, in addition to permissions, files can have
      extended attributes. One of those attributes is the "immutable"
      attribute, which if set makes the file unchangeable, _even_by_root_.

      To reverse this, "chattr -i <filename>"

      For further reading, see the man pages for chattr and lsattr
