Is it possible that those users are using their GMail address from a
non-Google host?  That would explain the intermittent nature of the
challenge -- it doesn't have the GMail DKIM signature that identifies
GMail-from-GMail messages.  And it would also explain why it "looks
like" DMARC, since DKIM is one of the underlying protocols used to
implement DMARC.
