Taking a quick look at the authorizations gui on my F9 system, you can
in fact do grants and blocks for individual users, but I don't see
anything in the list of possible authorization targets which is lock
screen. Rawhide could have added that however.

I still don't understand PolicyKit/ConsoleKit well enough to help you
track it down in the filesystem with 100% confidence.  But I would
suspect that you should look in /var/lib/PolicyKit/ and
/var/lib/PolicyKit-public/   for per-user authorization rules if they
existed.

Hope this helps.
