Bootloader is unlocked but "OEM unlocking" not allowed in Developer Options!

    I recently soft-bricked my OnePlus 6, by which I mean that I would see nothing but the LED shining white when I tried to boot it or boot it into recovery. Fastboot worked fine, however, and the bootloader was still unlocked, so I restored it by using a flash-all.bat script to reset all partitions and return me to stock. Then I upgraded to A6003_22_181026, restored almost everything from the initial google setup (only WhatsApp needed to be restored by hand) and continued on my merry way.

    My question is that in "Developer options" I can't help but notice that "OEM unlocking" is NOT on, yet the bootloader is in fact unlocked. Do I need to worry about this? Should I leave things as they are? Should I turn ON "Oem unlocking". Is this an inconsistent state?

    Thanks for any information and informed advice you can offer.

    Should've used the unbrick tool.

    if you have your bootloader unlocked oem unlock is always on and cannot be turned OFF. It is always ON. Could you send a screenshot of developer options? if you still have a problem use the unbrick tool like the previous comment suggested.
