I think the standard way is to take a dump of the bootloader and disassemble it using an ARM disassembler.

Then, examine the assembly code for a signature checking function, and if present, check the callers/return value to see if the signature is verified to allow booting upon a mismatch.

If you bought your phone from T-Mobile, the bootloader is unlocked. If you bought your phone elsewhere, your bootloader is locked.

Based on your signature, I'm assuming you bought a D855. Here's the bounty thread (temporarily locked) for unlocking its bootloader.
Over the years: Samsung Blackjack 2 -> Samsung Jack -> HTC Pure (TouchDiamond2) -> HTC Aria -> Motorola Atrix -> HTC One-X -> SGS3 -> LG G3

LG G3
TowelRoot
SuperSu
Xposed Installer

HP TouchPad
[ROM] [NIGHTLY] [KitKat] [4.4] CyanogenMod 11.0 nightlies [3.0 kernel]
Installed using JCSullins amazing Touchpad Toolbox
