Budgetary control functionality is enabled, but not using the encumbrance accounting functionality.
Journal approval is enabled as well.
Manual journals cannot be submitted for Posting right after successful reservation of funds. An error message is received after clicking the Post button to submit the journal for approval and posting.
The journal has to be re-queried to then be able to submit it for Posting.

Error: You cannot update this journal batch. This journal batch has been modified by another user or process and is in a state where no updates are allowed.

The issue can be reproduced with the following steps:
A manual journal entry is created and upon creation the different statuses are:

  Approval status: Required
  Funds status: Not attempted
  Batch status: Unposted

The actions Check Funds and Reserve Funds are done for the journal so the resulting statuses for the journal are:

  Approval status: Required
  Funds status: Reserved
  Batch status: Unposted

Next, click on Post button to submit for approval and automatic posting and receive the reported error.
