Thanks for this tip, I just picked up one of these today - was able to get the store assistant to confirm the date they recieved them so I knew I would be getting an older one. Got it home and found it had the 1_130 firmware but the OEM unlocking option was disabled. Initially I had no SIM or WIFI because I was scared the device would autoupdate, but as you said, had to turn on WiFi and reboot to get the option enabled.
I did have more trouble after that, the bootloader would crash when I plugged into my PC to unlock with fastboot, screen would drop back to white AndroidOne background with tiny text in top left "press any key to shutdown". I updated my android platform tools but that didn't help. In the end, it turned out to (probably) have been the cable I was using - my Oneplus 5T cable. When I swapped for the included Nokia cable it worked.

Oh one more question - once the bootloader is unlocked will OTA updates still work? If so, will installing them relock the bootloader?
