At the very least the kernel would have logged a warning message when
it remounted the filesystem readonly, and after that, each filesystem
inconsistency noticed by the kernel would still result in lots of
complaints logged by the kernel.

So there is something extremely fishy going on here.

You need to use the "chattr -i" command to remove the immutable flag
from those files.  See chattr man page for description of the
immutable and append-only flags.
