The open bootloader actually is required for Sailfish. So you can safely ignore this message.

As for the technical reasons behind this: The bootloader normally checks the integrity of the system it us about to boot. Since it only knows about the official Sony Android, it has to be unlocked in order to boot Sailfish. If you were to close it now with SFOS installed, it would complain about changed system files and deny booting.
