Yes. Absent such a warning, we should be vigilant whenever unlocking 
component primitives that they are relocked immediately when it is no

(Major purpose for unlocking primitives: to modify a silkscreen outline, 
for example to be able to read designator text which overlaps the outline; 
this is one way to get tighter legends with SMT parts.)
