Yeah, my 2007 and 2011 Rebas do have about 1cm of travel when I lock them. they require more pressure to move that bit though.
If the forks take a really big hit while you have them locked out, they'll move all the way to avoid damaging the internals.

So basically the lockout is merely an "extra extra extra stiff" setting.
