For the locked unspent transactions shown in listlockunspent, are there specific permissions required to unlock those transactions? Or anyone can unlock the transactions?

The locked status of unspent transaction outputs is purely a matter of the node's internal wallet status, and is not an event that affects the blockchain in any way. A locked output will not be used when a MultiChain node does "coin selection", choosing which outputs to spend in a new transaction.

So the answer to your question is that each node can unlock its own locked outputs.
