Regarding actuators with locks, is the 24VDC for releasing the lock required during normal operation

No, it is not required. The input of 24VDC to the BK-RLS terminal for the lock release is only required for manual adjustment when the motor is off or in an emergency situation. 
Do not activate the BK-RLS terminal during normal operation.
