New Macbooks and Imacs will brick themselves if they think they're being repaired by an independent technician

Surely the US govt. can't compel Apple to provide unlock codes for any interdiction it desires and surely China doesn't have all the T2 IP and documentation it requires to generate its own and surely Israel doesn't already have an active exploit. It is a nation state countermeasure and not vendor lock-in feature.
I like this and hate this all at the same time. It means someone cannot make unwanted changes to my computer without me knowing it . It also means that I need to take my device into Apple to get it unlocked should I choose to make hardware changes on my own.
As long as the unlock process is straightforward then I do not see the big issue except for parts of the world where Apple stores do not exist.
