[Discussion] OTA update issue and bootloader relocking problem

I have a Redmi note 5 AI 6/64 gb variant. After purchasing my device i have unlockd the bootloader and flash global stable rom but i can't relock the bootloader. my previous rom was MIUI China and my current rom is MIUI If i relock the bootloader phone boot into recovery mode and shows "This MIUI version can't be installed on this device". If i unlocked the bootloader again then phone reboot into OS. As per my findings from MIUI bootloader can't be locked after flashing global rom on Chinese device. Its a bug from xiaomi. So my question is
1. If i flash my device into can i relock my bootloader again and can perform OTA update?
2. I have got an OTA update MIUI If i update my device will it get bricked? If i can update my device via OTA update will it relock my bootloader automatically? Or do I have to flash it manually?

I have already tried that method. Phone get into bootloop. After unlocking the bootloader again then phone boot into OS. I have already tried to lock bootloader from fastboot command same problem occurred.
