If u root, your warranty will not be void. If u officially unlock the bootloader, u have to ask bootloader key with sony which they will mail you and your warranty will be void (You can get your warranty and DRM keys back, if you perform TA backup before unlocking).

You don't use the official method to unlock but use a test point instead. Search in your rom thread

A service center will use SEUS to reset or reflash the device. This is standard in most centers. SEUS will tell that the device has unofficial software and thus letting them know that the bootloader is unlocked.
