Question about Audi A6
1996 with occassional locked brakes, not locking up while driving but not releasing after stopping. wait for 30 minutes and then can drive again
It is possible you have a brake hose acting as a check valve. Pump brake pedal until brakes drag and under hood release the line nuts one by one on the brake master cylinder.....if brakes release you have master cylinder problem....if not you have brake hose problem. This symptom is usually experienced when engine warms up ad heats up the aluminum m/c..

Eighter you have problem to the to the anti lock brake modelue like a connection .Or there it a stuck valve inside BPMV witch is the molelue likely a dump valve witch is suppose to release the pressure .Unpluging the vacuum hose to the vacuum booster control will just disable the power brakeing mode .Try to figure witch wheel or wheels are not releaseing because the anti lock feature should not come into play unless there are extreame brakeing conduitions .See if its not a problem with a caliper sticking

sounds like pressure is building up at your calipers make sure your brake peddle has no pressure on it and is not sticking to check this just see if you can pull up on it
if it pulls up see what is stopping it from doing so on it's own

Have you checked the emergency brake ? The cable could be locked up. Slowly apply e brake if it feels loose the cable is locked up. You could also have someone watch the cable near the rear wheel to see if it moves .
