Yes, the A125U has OEM UNLOCK in the developer options......you can turn that ON by going into : settings > about phone > software information ...and then tap BUILD NUMBER several times until you see that you have enabled "developer options". Then you go into developer options and turn on OEM UNLOCKING.
Before updating firmware recently OEM UNLOCKING was greyed out. But now I can switch it on. Now the question is, can this variant be properly bootloader unlocked and rooted. The known repository for downloadable firmwares for Samsung phones DOES NOT seem to have this variant firmware for download. And I wonder if that is required for this to be properly rooted.
I'd like to know this too. I believe the internal are all the same for the MediaTek devices. I got a SM-A125F for free and want to use it in the US. It looks like I could if I can convert it to SM-A125U or MS-A125M. I already bricked it once trying to flash U firmware and has to flash back to F
