I did not know that about the Nexus One leaving an unlocking trace...interesting--and I haven't heard anything about this for the GNex, but I'm not sure it matters...the device is being released with the ability for it to be unlocked (and re-locked), so I would think that there wouldn't be any worries involved (unless you tried to make a warranty claim / return with a phone that was clearly still unlocked).

Oh, I'm sure its just a "fastboot oem lock" counterpart to the unlock command to re-lock it (preceded by flashing/restoring the stock image of course).

There's info / threads on XDA and elsewhere about this already for the GSM (maguro) stock boot image, but I don't think we have the VZW stock image yet.
