Default Unlock before or after flashing stock?

I'm about to unlock the sim carrier on my Moto G, and I want to flash the stock (non branded) software. Does it matter in which order I do it in?

Will either affect the other?

As far as i know, sim unlocking has nothing to do with the firmware (rom,os) running (atleast for most phones). If you are on some custom rom like cm11, better to flash stock firmware and then sim unlock. Also, I thought moto g is sold unlocked worldwide? I know some are, like verizon(cdma). Most of them are cdma ones.
