Carriers won't check KNOX status to give you an unlock code, all they check is the IMEI which can even be provided by email or live chat online.

They only check for warranty replacements.

So if I tripped knox on this ATT GNote3, pay for the regional unlock code it will still unlock my SIM allowing me to take device to any carrier?

You can do this over the phone or through live chat. They don't need access to your physical phone.
