Check the hose as i had one that came apart inside and the little flap was acting like a check valve preventing the fluid to return to the master cylinder in a normal fashion. second, i had one brake that the piston was cocking in the bore and not returning. make sure the caliper is floating on its pin (not stuck). other than that, you will have to check the master cylinder, you could have a broken return spring inside that returns the plunger.

Rear breaks lock up at slow speeds. when traveling from 0 to 10 MPH if breaks are applied abruptly 1 or both of the rear wheels will lock up before the front breaks seem to engage, especially on wet road....

`right one of two problems ,firstly remove the rear drums and check for a fluid leak as a slight smear of fluid will cause the exact problems you describe ,if the rear shoes are dry then push the cylinder each side to make sure its not seized ,secondly check the load sensing valve which will be under the chassis above the back axle,if that appears ok and not seized then remove the master cylinder and take the piston out and check the rubbers and the cylinder bore for wear ,but mainly this fault is caused by the brake shoes having a slight amount of brake fluid contamination and it causes the brakes to grab

Break calpier 2000 v 316

If rear, then parking brake possible cause.
But front and rear calipers often lock from corrosion on piston or binding on sliding parts.
Remove caliper, remove piston with compressed air or greasegun, clean corrosion, clean all grease out, replace seals. (compressed air is dangerous!)

no. It would be the other way around. If something went wrong in the rear end and it locked up, you could break the drive shaft universal joints trying to force it to go. if your rear end locked up, I'd be willing to bet there was no oil in it.
