I suggest that you consider turning on a trace while releasing an inspection plan and see if SAP provides an authorization check. You may also try to determine if SAP uses Status Management -- a cross-application functionality -- in relation to inspection plans.
There are authorization objects for status management that allow you to control who can change the status for an object. This may require that status management with user statuses be configured.
Good luck and happy hunting!
