No. More likely, your laptops are preactivated, which means that the
antitheft features are not enabled. If a file claled /ofw/mfg-data/ak
exists then this is the case.

Activation leases are unrelated to the security features around signed
images. Currently the only option for creating your own signed images
which can be installed at the OFW level is to insert your own "S"
security key into the manufacturing data. You will also need your own
"O" key if you are going to use a custom initramfs and/or kernel.
