Yes It will because the Stock firmwares are officially signed by Motorola.

It depends on if you have rooted and installed custom recovery or not. But if you are not on root you will get update for sure...

locked bootloader is not required to get OTA update, the only require is stock recovery and stock rom.

Download the signed stock rom by motorola, the problem will be solved. This rom is not official/signed. OP just updated a faulty link.
