My spouse had locking lug nuts on her first Honda CR-V (2013) and they were such a PITA I replaced them with non-locking lug nuts. Her updated CR-V (2018) did not come through with them, so I am guessing that Honda has made them optional, either for profit reasons OR because too many people complained about them. When I replaced the 4 lockers on the 2013, the parts guy told me a lot of customers had done the same thing. YMMV!
When our van was new the locking nuts came with the van, but not installed - the dealer installed them, and that was the normal practice. If Honda does the same thing, the 2018 might not have come with them, or they just might not have been installed.
Long ago I lost the key for our van's locking nuts, and had a dealer take them off and replace them with standard nuts. The most recent time that I bought a used vehicle from a dealer, I had that dealer replace the locking nuts with standard nuts as part of the purchase. I hate the things, and have no intention to ever use them again.
