I'm ignorant, but I would think they don't. If that is true, then the carrier argument is invalid in my mind.
I'm not too sure about HTC because I've never owned their devices, but I do know that Samsung encrypted the bootloader on the gs3 and note2 on Verizon, but not on any other carrier. Also, Motorola has an unlock tool for their bootloaders, but none of the devices that it supports are on Verizon.
