Do you have to switch on 'Force Root Lock' after recording a character?

I have tried recording an AI controlled character with the old recorder and the new Take Recorder (which is the preferred option) and both do not play back the recorded animation correctly unless I switch on ‘Force Root Lock’ on the recorded motion. This can get tedious, especially considering I’ll have a hundred or so actors eventually recorded at once.

Is this expected?

If it is expected, is there a way to parse through all animations and set this checkbox on all animations in let’s say a certain folder?

Thanks a lot for any help.
