I have created a localized site with 9 locales for a client in craft v2.6. They are now requesting us to create a user group for each locale so they can assign editors for each of those regions. When a user creates a new entry they want the new entry to be enabled only for the preferred locale for that user instead of the default enabled locales that are set in the section setting. Is it possible to override a section’s settings based on user group permissions? I know this is a strange request and I don't believe it is doable but wanted to see if anyone had any thoughts on this.

There's nothing native in Craft that would allow you to do this.
Maybe you could do something like write a plugin that listened to the onBeforeSaveEntry event and simulate it by enabling/disabling it for various locales based on the current user's permissions.
