If I update my phone with a carrier's version of the OS does it lock my phone to that carrier

[ Edited ]

I live in Hong Kong where the purchase of Unlocked phones is common. If I update my phone with a carrier's version of the OS does it lock my phone to that carrier, disable anything or just add the carrier logo's?

 

Are there non-carrier updates available?
