And it'll show device tampered true or false

To get it all back to stock, flash the factory image completely then boot TWRP (don't flash it) and run the bootunlocker script found in the Nexus 5 unroot thread

Tampered is set to FALSE, so to return to full stock i just flash the image and afterwards lock the bootloader (fastboot oem lock) manualy.

That's strange, unless you've unlocked via an app after getting root using TowelRoot...as soon as you use 'fastboot oem unlock' it should set it to true

I reset the flag with BootUnlocker already.

And that's where it can be a bit dodgy. It's better to flash the factory image first, then boot into TWRP and run the boot unlocker script. I don't like to trust apps

the bootloader could *potentially* set tampered at the same time it clears unlocked, so this is not guaranteed to work.

but it could work... does it?

I've always used BootUnlocker to reset the flag and never had an issue.
