Default [Q] Will factory resetting M8 remove SIM unlock?

Planning to buy an At&t HTC One M8 but wanted some clarity regarding unlocking the phone.

Will it remove the SIM unlock if I do a factory reset if the phone is:
-Carrier Unlocked
-Third Party paid unlocked

Also, will I get the software updates in the above two scenarios?

Factory unlock is permanent as it is stored in the nvram.. Which is a protected partition in the phone that is separate from your system.
