My guess is that your calendar processing is set to allow conflicts.  If you run this command, is the value for AllowConflicts set to "True"?

Get-Mailbox | Where { $_.RecipientTypeDetails -eq "RoomMailbox" } | Get-CalendarProcessing | ft -auto Identity,AllowConflicts

Open in new window

If they are, run this command (for each room mailbox) that you want to prevent overbooking...

Set-CalendarProcessing -Identity "ROOMMAILBOXNAME" -AllowConflicts $false

Open in new window

It appears this was a silly issues. The user was booking appointments in the past. Somehow Exchange accepted these.
