PDM PostLock/PreUnlock Read Only During Callback

During the callbacks for PostLock and PreUnlock, if a file is checked in or out using the PDM Add-in for Solidworks, the file is always in read-only status and cannot be modified. However, when checking in or out through explorer and opening the file, the file is not read-only and can be modified. I would like to make modifications to a file during the check out process and save it (locally) which cannot be completed due to the file being read-only, and I would also like to make modifications to a file during the check in process and save it which also cannot be completed due to the file being read-only. Is there a way around this issue, other than restricting users to only being able to check in from explorer?
