I touched a test file in the locks directory and it was still there after starting MM.  I found the solution after further searching (on an archived systemd-devel mailing list post, of course):

>> ExecStart does not go through a shell, so it won't expand wildcards.

>> Try running 'find /dir -mindepth 1 -delete', that also cleans up dotdirs.

>> Alternatively 'sh -c "rm .../*" to handle wildcards.

Problem solved!
