I think these guys may have something.

The key isn't like the push button start vehicles, so no, if you're next to the truck (or even in it with the doors closed and key out of ign) it should lock.
I know in my 2005 if I tried to lock the doors with the key in the ignition, it would do exactly what is happening to you.
Kinda odd that it is sporadic...

I think, the truck thinks the key is literally key in the ignition, even if it isn't.
Or maybe the truck thinks one of your doors aren't fully closed and it won't lock.

If you're not sure if you have an OEM or aftermarket alarm, take a pic of the key fob remote and post it.

Learn it, know it, live it.
