Google load screen on boot (with /e/ OS)

Hi - dumb question, but with /e/ installed and working well, wondering why upon boot the Google load screen appears first, then the /e/ screen? Something to do with Lineage?

if you have anything related directly to Google in /e/OS, then you didn’t wiped correctly the phone.

Go into TWRP > Wipe > Format Data > yes > Reboot System > Do Not Install.

in the adb shell, pm list packages, i see dozens of files

My Nexus 5 does the same thing. I think it’s just the stock Google bootloader no. My MotG4 does something similar shows the Motorola unlock warning.

Which is a good question, after installing e should the bootloader be locked? Or will it break things?
