The Enforced option ensures the settings from the linked GPO always win conflicts regardless of any other Group Policy object that contains policy settings that may conflict with those of the linked GPO. The GPMC visually represents an enforced Group Policy link by adding a padlock to the existing linked policy icon. Group Policy settings from an enforced link always apply, even if the organizational unit has block policy inheritance enabled

The lock icon is a clue that the policy settings you are looking at are being set via domain policy, not local policy.

The domain GPO's all settings I"m looking at is settings for domain use, no?
Those locks are already there in my fresh lap environment. Enforcing is only done on GPO level, not setting level as far as I know as well.
I'm still not clear...
