If by 'unlock' you mean 'unlink from authorities', then you have to
edit your MARC frameworks. Read here for instructions
I recommend that you use authorities for that fields, and check what's
going on with authorities indexing/search. Take into account that you
need to first 'catalog' the authority you're about to use, and also
that indexing cronjob must be set. And you need to wait at least one
minute for it to actually do the indexing.
