The default value for @locktitle is "no". To quote from its description in http://docs.oasis-open.org/dita/v1.2/cd03/spec/common/topicref-atts.html :

This attribute makes sure the navtitle element or attribute is used if it is present. If locktitle isn't set to "yes", the navtitle is ignored and text is retrieved from the target.

I.e. if you want to use a navtitle you have to explicitly set locktitle to "yes" - hence its default, implied value must be "no".
