It is on some architectures, but not all.  On my current sources:

netbsd:~/os/netbsd/src> grep LOCKDEBUG sys/arch/*/conf/GENERIC
sys/arch/amd64/conf/GENERIC:#options    LOCKDEBUG    # expensive locking 
sys/arch/i386/conf/GENERIC:#options     LOCKDEBUG    # expensive locking 
sys/arch/ia64/conf/GENERIC:#options     LOCKDEBUG    # expensive locking 
sys/arch/iyonix/conf/GENERIC:#options   LOCKDEBUG
sys/arch/mac68k/conf/GENERIC:#options   LOCKDEBUG    # kernel lock debugging
sys/arch/sbmips/conf/GENERIC:#options   LOCKDEBUG    # XXX XXX XXX XXX
sys/arch/sparc/conf/GENERIC:#options    LOCKDEBUG
sys/arch/sparc64/conf/GENERIC:#options  LOCKDEBUG
sys/arch/vax/conf/GENERIC:#options      LOCKDEBUG

Same thing as above (lack of consistency across architectures), I believe.

netbsd:~/os/netbsd/src> ls sys/arch/*/conf/ALL
