I have no idea what lvm locks are and what are they for and I don't
remember you ever epxlained that in this thread.  You also never
explained why you

  ... would like to have something persistent between reboots.

So, does lvm requre locks to persist reboots or not for correct

lvm.conf(5) says

  ... use flocks on files in locking_dir ... to avoid conflicting LVM2
  commands running concurrently on a single machine.

and flocks don't persist across reboots.
