Yes.

And, to be hyperextending would have to imply overly aggresive lockout not a relaxed lockout which would result in hypoextending as opposed to hyperextending, wouldn't it?

No, not necessarily. Could imply instability due to weakness, lack of balance, etc. You could feel lightheaded during a squat, tip slightly sideways during a lockout, and put added pressure on your ankle or knee as you try to catch yourself.

My point was that unless something funky is going on at the point of lockout, it is safer, or provides less direct stress on the joints than not locking out.
