Only a check mark in the Read-only box means that a folder or file is Read-only.
Windows doesn't check all the files in a folder so instead displays a greenish block to indicate that it is not sure.
You need to look at the files individually to see if any are read-only.
Easiest to do that is to make the Attributes visible in "View > Details" mode: Choose Details in Windows Explorer.
