offhand, I recall that the Unix-style permissions don't map to Windows - no group- and 
other-bits) so chmod won't match (though the owner bits "work").  It's stuff 
like that, not as obvious.
That is true of the original filesystem, but with NT much was changed:
there are permission bits for reading, writing, modifying, name-changing,
deleting, ... and access-control lists & groups.  It looks more like VMS.

VMS has (like Windows) both access-control lists and an older set of
permissions (read/write/execute/delete for 4 levels).
