Hello everyone!

Just trying to understand some terminology: "icloud lock" vs. "Activation lock"

1. When they speak of "icloud locked". Does this mean that someone who owned the laptop has purposely locked their machine to prevent anyone else from using it? In other words, is it something that someone has to do in the settings menu?

2. For example, a macbook air 2020, A2179 purchased second hand from someone who forgot to disengage their apple ID from their device, does this mean the laptop is "icloud locked" or is it "Activation locked"
If I erase the Mac and reinstall OS via OTA, will it allow me to do so without requiring the original Apple ID of that person that sold it to me?
