Me too, I was on Locked Bootloader and never saw a bit of difference in image quality. Also is not the X-Reality only reported missing but even Bionz Processing, so if you are really concerned about this you can try this kind of fix...

I didn't said it was not working on Locked Bootloader, I just said I did not saw any difference so I was never bothered to check after Unlock Bootlader if the X-Reality still working. It's a tweek for improve the image quality but only on phone, if you put your picture on PC there will be no more X-Reality so to me this kind of tweeks are useless. My only concern is Bionz Processing as this really can compromise the quality of your pictures.

You are on Unlocked Bootloader so if you want check, see the link I posted or type on XDA Fix X-Reality, maybe I missing something.

Placebos i would say. An image processing chip like Bionz for mobile is much needed in order to convert the cameras raw data and make it for instance a jpeg. This is how it works in all cameras. If that wouldn't be there then the camera wouldn't work at all. That was the case before 4.3 right?

I spoke to a Sony technician saying that "unlocking a bootloader won't change the phone, but custom software will and that might brick your phone" he admitted that they've had problems before 4.3 but that has been solved now. And I had to pull that out of him kinda. I asked alot of questions that people kinda just speculate about because I want hard facts. He wasn't that keen on saying much more but I gave him my email address anyway.

Interprete this how you want, I don't wanna be held responsible for anyone might bricking their phones. Just forwarded what's told to me.
