That's a good question. I think as soon as you unlock the bootloader with the official App from Asus, your phone's imei gets blacklisted by Asus servers, so OTA won't work anymore even though you relock it. Presently, I'm not sure if it exists alternative ways to unlock the bootloader so it won't get blacklisted.
I don't know if you are going to lose root if you relock the bootloader but if you reset your device from the android menu, my phone lost root. I think I had to repatch the boot loader so I could root it again.
Just flash any official update and tge twrp will be changed by stock recoveryHelp i tried flashing the twrp and it worked just fine. i was able to boot Treble ROMS however i havent backed up the stock recovery of Z5.

You can flash the stock firmware with this TWRP, before you do that, make sure to factory wipe. I did use treble but got all kind of stuff like google not certified and others has no playstore, flash the entire zip from ASUS using the twrp, worked, but recovery is still TWRP when I tried to reboot recovery=)
Here is the bootloader http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/Ze...71.1602527222.1525803528-691235045.1507666740 for the ZenFone 5 (ZE620KL)
I am not able to locate one for the zenfone 5z (zs620kl).
