The documentation states that lockscreen puts the session in  a detached state - screen -list even says as much. However when one does a reattach with prior detach (screen -D -RR for example) one can connect with that session while it stays in its locked state in its original tty. if one then unlocks the session inside the original tty this actually works. If one takes the documentation literally - it shouldnt. Compare for example tmux - after unlocking the original session - it simply detaches.
