Well if you delete certain apks then the phone is no longer stock therfore it can cause an ota to not install doesn't mean that will happen but it can depending on what's deleted so it's better to freeze apps than delete makes it easier to reverse changes if a problem should arise during the ota

I don't think so.
Deleting apps does not make it "Non-stock"
There is no part of a OTA update that will check to see if all system apps are present before proceeding.

In fact, from the Sony website it is still possible to get OTA updates even with an unlocked bootloader (Let alone root, or deleted system apps), it just recommends that you do not do it, so OTAs do not rely on your phone being completely stock

If thats true I have yet to see it work for any of my other 4 or 5 android devices. When I had the note 2 and updates roleld out for it, if there was 1 frozen app the update would fail sayign it did not match the md5 sum or the update.pak or something like that....

True, but that may be because of root status and/or bootloader status.
As can be seen by the Sony site I linked to it has been possible, at least in the past, to OTA update with an unlocked bootloader.

Anyway, the point is moot, as it seems more and more people are having issues with OTA, and I don't know of anyone who has had one recently where it worked with an unlocked boot, so maybe things are changing in the new updates.
