Default [Q] Can LG brick my phone?

I purchased 3 g2 d802 from ebay (HK top rated seller)
The phones came rooted.
When i check for system updates i geg the message "your phone is not registered yet" on 2/3 phones. 3rd one says "no update available".
When i check imei at lg site its not recognized.

Seller says phones are ok and it is probably a mistake.

Im afraid if the phones are stolen lg will block them, can they do it? I know google can....

Maybe the phones were indeed stolen and the seller changed the IMEI to a random one because the original IMEI was blocked. You can remove the back housing and check if the IMEI that is written on the sticker inside the housing is the same as the one reported by the device when you enter *#06#.

Imei number is the same at the sticker on the back and the *#06# and the settings.
The question is - in case it is stolen - can my phone be blocked in the future??
