Up to 4.2, it had an unlocked bootloader. From 4.3 on, it has a locked bootloader, and you cn't install a custom recovery or flash a custom ROM.

Default last question

OK last question.... If I buy a new out of the box note 3 today it would come with 4.3 or 4.4...Is there a way to revert back to 4.2?

This is the T-MO Note 3 section, correct. The Note 3 only came with 4.3 and the T-MO variant comes with a unlocked bootloader.

The Note 3 was released with 4.3 (Jellybean). The T Mobile version does have an unlocked bootloader. And you CAN flash custom roms, recoveries, and kernels. The Note 3 never had 4.2.

Why is it "big knox crap"? The entire point that people ARE talking about knox is because if you have a T-Mobile phone the speculation is that IF you trip knox you'll void warranty. Which is why so many are trying to use Kango or something else to root and NOT trip knox.

You're welcome to root, flash a custom recovery, and a custom ROm, however, you will trip knox. Not sure what that will mean if/when you try to trade teh device back in. YMMV.
