I assumed he was referring to write protection in the capacity described here:
 under the section "Are you currently running libreboot (or coreboot)?"

The implications are that Libreboot can be made to act like that original firmware in which you have only the option of writing new firmware externally rather than the convenience of the flashrom utility.

i'm not sure if there is something like "write protected firmware".

maybe it's more something like "signed firmware which detects when
itself gets modified".

please send a link to documentation about this "write protection" you
want to play with!
