Linked is not like the locking options, so it should be kept separated.
A dropdown menu is expected to disappear on clicking an entry, so
changing several options would make for a click orgy.
Color and Geometry lock are no way as important as linking.
The fact your targets only appear after an initial action slows you
down. Icons/Checkboxes above the list might be faster to handle,
because you see them right away.

It's usualy difficult enough to convey a single action or state with
an icon, but trying to combine 4 aspects with all possible combinations?
The only possibility I see are 4 mini icons in the space of one, most
likely making for a nice pixel salad.
I'm all for icons above the list.
