I'm going to contradict here, mine are all root:root mode 600.

This is a much better plan! The various errors like

indicate that the cdrecord.mmap binary is not running with root
privileges (see man mlockall), because as Andreas said, you need to
set the suid bit on the binaries themselves. The suid bit on the
cdrecord script isn't doing anything.

  chmod 4710 /usr/bin/cdrecord.*
  chmod 755 /usr/bin/cdrecord
