    OK.. Let me explain this to you. Android apps each run under there own user id with limited permission. Root means you have installed a program called SU which runs as the root/unrestricted user. It can run commands on behalf of other apps if you grant that app permission.

    TWRP is a custom recovery. When you boot to recovery, you are NOT booting the ROM. All recoveries, including stock, run without restriction. They are basically root. This has NOTHING to do with your ROM and being rooted. The only relation is that you normally SU by using TWRP because TWRP already has root and has permission to install stuff into the ROM, like SU.

    When you install a ROM using the OOS updater, it reboots into stock recovery and recovery flashes the ROM (using a script) because only recovery has the permission and you can't update a running system. As long as a ROM is from OnePlus, it will have a OnePlus signature that only OnePlus can write, and you can flash it with the stock recovery.

    Since SU packages aren't signed by OnePlus, you can't flash SU (root) without using TWRP, and you have to unlock the bootloader in order to install TWRP (again, because TWRP isn't signed by OnePlus).

    So ... Anything from OnePlus can be installed by stock recovery. Root is a modification to the ROM that needs you to unlock the boot loader and install TWRP.
