i believe if a login belongs to the sysadmin group, and you create a user for the login in any database, the db)owner checkbox gets inherited as readonly ; that's what you are seeing, i think.
can you check the login and see if it is a sysadmin?
also check to see if the windows group is sysadmin, and since the user belongs to that group, it's the same effective permissions.
