When a suspension fork is locked it still has a bit of hard suspension for heavy bumps.
At least mine does but I'm sure most do.
This is handy for obstacles like railway tracks or sudden potholes.
I've never ridden with a carbon fork yet (but soon will) so I cannot comment on the qualities of those but I know that rigid metal forks are very harsh on cobblestones or railway tracks.
