If I had to guess it would be some kind of behind the scenes scandal. Samsung among a few other companies like Hyundai basically have all the power in Korea.

Verizon phones are locked down by Qualcomm. Efuses are built in by carrier spec in order to control network integrity through the limiting of lower level access. Samsung doesn't have a dog in the fight except the quantity of users vs other manufacturers. I'm sure he got fired because the galaxy line hasn't seen a major break through since the s3.

A design chief has absolutely nothing to do with the internals of a device or "locking" status, they simply "design" it - and this design didn't get favorable reviews. That's the reason most major tech sites (not CNN money) are saying he resigned.
