There is a spring-loaded pawl that normally lays against the star wheel to prevent the adjusting screw from rotating in the "wrong" direction and increasing the distance between the shoes and the drum.

Here's a full description, 2000 Century, but pretty much all GM cars of the era have the same set up.
