Every application has a “current working directory”. When you save a file in Toad (or most other programs), the current working directory is going to be wherever
you saved the file to.
I just tried it with MS Word and got the same result. It may be a little inconvenient, but it is nothing to worry about.
To get the lock to be released you could either close Toad or save a file (the same or a different one) to another location from Toad.
