No US models can have the bootloader unlocked as of now, i think. Since the S7 it's been nearly impossible for U.S. models to unlock, the S8 was unlocked only since an engineer leaked some data.

So if you want to root your SOL, might need to get an international unlocked version.

S22 s901u snapdragon USA search for oem in settings and this shows up as a setting in developer options. Is there a way to enable or unhide this setting? Because my phone thinks that it is there or something...

You are not entirely correct. We have unlocked bootloader on us devices. But his s22 I'm sure is to far updated to be able to do anything.

No

Oem unlock does not exist on us devices. And if you have even had it update one time it is not possible to do

Oem unlocking must not be removed but hidden or disabled, because if it was removed it would not show up in search and then say it's under developer options. So you must be incorrect.
