Can bootloader be left unlocked after flashing to Sailfish?

I recently flashed my first Sony devices (Xperia XA2) to Sailfish. After installation, the devices ask on every reboot to lock the bootloader, but the flashing instructions do not suggest this.

As a dumb(ish) user I am a unsure should I believe the message given by the phone, and if so, why it is not mentioned in the instructions?
