Perhaps the zip contains file permissions that Sigil's unzip is honouring?

That's exactly what I said in my comment on the issue on the tracker.

ZipArchive, the library Sigil uses for ZIP operations is good; perhaps too good. Where other ZIP tools fail to preserve the permissions of the files stored in the ZIP file, ZipArchive doesn't. I should take a look into making it "dumber".
