Xperia Z1, rooted, unlocked bootloader, JB (KitKat brings me nothing, maybe troubles with camera!!!)
This is only my opinion. I have never noticed a difference with xreality, bionz or any other image effect before or after unlocking the bootloader or even by turning these effects on or off.
They only "work" on the device itself anyway so pictures taken with the camera and uploaded to another device will not be effected.

If you are still unsure, watch this.

I made a comparison with a photo taken by the previous firmware (14.3.A.0.761) and the latest firmware (14.4.A.0.108) attached below, the LEFT image is from .761 and on the RIGHT is the latest .108 you can see the difference on the noise level of the image (I suggest to download the image and see for yourself) notice the Left image has a lot of Noise if you zoomed the image you can notice it but on the Right image the noise is not visible

Is your bootloader unlocked? Thank's for the pictures. The new firmware seems to do a good job.
