Z2 Plus doesn't actually lock the bootloader. With locked bootloader, the phone can still boot with unofficial ROMs, there's merely a warning message before the phone continue to boot - even if you unlock the bootloader, such warning still won't go away.
You may use QPST/QFIL's partition manager (with the firehose flasher program extracted from stock ROM package) to flash TWRP into the recovery partition.
Unlocking bootloader merely provides convenience in fastboot mode. However it's not hard for Z2 to enter EDL (9008) mode, the so-called "deep flash USB cable" works. There're test points on the mainboard as well.
