HPE Epyc 7002 Upgrade Kits vendor locked or not?

Good evening,

I am currently shopping for an Epyc 7002 series CPU and saw that some of the HPE upgrade kits end up being a bit more affordable than plain Epyc CPUs but I (very vaguely) remember some vendors vendor locking the Epyc CPUs one way or another.

Does anyone know whether that's the case with the HPE ones or should I be able to use one of these in a non-HPE system?

Thanks!
