yes, you will still get ota updates if you dont mod anything else, you just wont be able to flash them.

at that point, if really the wanting exists, you can flash the stock recovery to flash the ota. but, its just easier to flash an aosp build when its in aosp via your custom recovery, and usually way before an ota is available
