I suppose the real question is what does the bridge currently do with
BR_LEARNING + BR_PORT_LOCKED, and if that is sane and useful in any case?
It isn't a configuration that's rejected, for sure. The configuration
could be rejected via a bug fix patch, then in net-next it could be made
to learn these addresses with the BR_FDB_LOCKED flag.

To your question regarding the common case (no MAB): that can be supported
just fine when BR_LEARNING is off and BR_PORT_LOCKED is on, no?
No BR_FDB_LOCKED entries will be learned.
