Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Does the tag effectively close / lock a question?

No, it doesn't. A locked question is a question that cannot be voted, and answered anymore. The tag is used from moderators, and developers to mark the task reported in the question as completed.
