Currently, web maps have two check boxes on their settings page: 

Use in ArcGIS Collector, and

Use in ArcGIS Field Maps Mobile


Checking the Field Maps box makes the map available in the mobile app, but only as a read only version even if the layers have editing enabled. In order to allow editing, both the Collector and Field Maps boxes must be checked, even if the map will never be accessed in Collector. 

It is not at all intuitive to have to check the Collector box to allow editing. The Use in ArcGIS Field Maps Mobile check box should enable either read only or editing access, based on how the layers are configured on the web map.
