Is this still true for my note 2 with a locked bootloader?
I believe there's 2 things in play here. First I believe that device was able to utilize kexec which allowed you to flash kernels and therefor allowed aosp roms. Second, safestrap also comes into play. In theory, safestrap would work for a locked Note 2 but I don't believe anybody has bothered making it work so I can't be sure.
