Question [Q] Locked bootloaders?

Hey, thinking about getting the ATT Note for my Mom.
On my Galaxy S4 phone, the latest updates from AT&T locked the bootloader down even more. So I'd never buy another S4.

What about on the Note? I know the original did not have a locked bootloader. Well, have any of the recent updates locked the bootloader? Is there anything I need to worry about before buying a second-hand Note?

Will be wanting to flash CyanogenMOD 10.X on it.
AT&T Galaxy S4
Rooted Google Play Edition 4.4 ROM
Ktoonsez AOSP 4.4 kernel
  • Xposed Mods
  • Tasker
  • Utter

No bootloader and its just older I went with the Note 2 for my mom and just set it up left it alone no custom rom or root and it still receives updates its up to 4.3 now and it runs pretty well.
