I don't see why the code would do what you're saying it does. And an
experiment seems to confirm what I said; I checked out landlock-v26,
and the behavior I get is:

user@vm:~/landlock$ dd if=/dev/null of=/tmp/aaa
0+0 records in
0+0 records out
0 bytes copied, 0.00106365 s, 0.0 kB/s
user@vm:~/landlock$ LL_FS_RO='/lib' LL_FS_RW='/' ./sandboxer dd
if=/dev/null of=/tmp/aaa
0+0 records in
0+0 records out
0 bytes copied, 0.000491814 s, 0.0 kB/s
user@vm:~/landlock$ LL_FS_RO='/tmp' LL_FS_RW='/' ./sandboxer dd
if=/dev/null of=/tmp/aaa
dd: failed to open '/tmp/aaa': Permission denied
user@vm:~/landlock$

Granting read access to /tmp prevents writing to it, even though write
access was granted to /.
