Yes, I believe so...(I know that the unlock will wipe, but I've never heard anyone talk about wiping taking place during locking). I'm pretty sure it won't wipe anything during re-lock and I found a reference on XDA who corrected someone about that same question:

xda-developers - View Single Post - Internal SDCARD Memory Wiped?

I've relocked my phone a few times, but I don't think I ever bothered to check the SD card contents afterwards...

I would test that for you, but I can't do that this evening...sounds like you are on the cusp of doing this anyway , you could backup your SD card contents just before re-locking and then let us know?

By the way, are you re-locking because you need to return your device or do you have another reason?
