Apps need permission to modify your lock settings if they do not use a rooted bypass. This permission is usually given through Device Administrators. If you do not see Tasker listed in this section with a permission request, it will not be able to change lock screen settings other than the Swipe. It's the same behavior with tracking apps that can remotely lock your phone.
