(Please note: while the topic of the example question cited here is controversial, this question is not a place to express your thoughts about it. This is a simple support question asking about the system.)
A user had just started a bounty on this question. Less than an hour later, it was historically locked. (The bounty probably wasn't the cause of the lock; otherwise, the bounty would have likely been cleared at the same time.)
Can the bounty still be awarded by the user, or can it no longer be awarded? If not, will automatic awarding still work? (Automatic awarding is moot in this specific question's case, since no answers were posted after the bounty was started, but I want to know for the general case.)
Also, what happens for other types of locks? I imagine that it would work since they work differently, but I'd still like to know.
Bounty cannot be awarded on a locked answer does not address my question as that's for the case where the question was unlocked and the answer was individually, on its own, locked; in this case, the question is locked instead. Also, that question doesn't address the case of automatic awarding, which is mentioned here.
