I doubt that there is a locked position - I suspect the only thing holding it is the motor winding itself. I never would have thought that the wind could have got the process started.
Maybe that was the problem? I've never had an electric awning that wanted to reverse when it was fully retracted; but they do "reverse" when extending them too far and will actually wrap back up with the awning under the roll rather than on top of the roll.
