Basically this is a contradiction:

"Please consider adding a comment if you think this post can be improved." popup notice after downvoting a question that is locked; it has the message "Locked for 24 days. Comments on this question have been disabled, but it is still accepting new answers and other interactions. Learn more."  Free-hand circles in a medium-to-dark shade of orange draw a contrast between the two mismatched parts of the texts, highlighting its peculiarity.

The popup notice

Please consider adding a comment if you think this post can be improved.

appears after downvoting a locked question

Locked for 24 days. Comments on this question have been disabled, but it is still accepting new answers and other interactions. Learn more.

It was on this question.

I feel this is undesirable behavior, and so I submit this as a bug report. I suggest blocking the comment-suggesting popup in cases when comments are prevented.

    I added the comment-lock tag because I think it's only applicable for it. I think a "full lock" doesn't allow voting so you cannot get the message to add a comment. I may be missing some type of lock here. – VLAZ Jun 24 '20 at 10:33

Thanks for pointing this out. I went in and disallowed this popup from appearing if the user is unable to comment on the post.
