My experience is with DCT3 phones and yours is a DCT4 so i'm not sure that what i'll explain next happens in newer phones

When a phone is unlocked with unlock code the info about the MCC+MNC codes can still be read in phone although locks will show open

When a phone is unlocked with cable and software the locks will be open aswell but MCC+MNC codes will be reset to 00101

In first case Nokia's service centers can see that the phone was bought in a contract and can check if it's supposed to be unlocked. If they verify that phone shouldn't be unlocked they can lock it again

In second case, all they see is a phone that could have been bought free from the start since there's no info about the provider.

Please note that it depends on which country you're in since in UK it's not illegal to unlock phones and guarantee issues might be different

cheers
