The answer to the question is no. The legendary thing called Rayquaza is not locked in Pokemon Emerald. Apparently, it is only locked in the recent games due to cutscenes and such. If you want to get a Rayquaza in Pokemon Emerald, you can do it by soft resetting.
Soft resetting is the term to all the act of getting a Pokemon or encountering a one time only encounterable Pokemon. You are able to do it by saving prior to the encounter. Another way is to get the Pokemon. In case your encounter is not considered either Shiny Encounter or Shiny Pokemon, you might want to make a second attempt to get the shiny one by quitting the game or reloading the file that you save. There is a thing known as the Shiny Charm that can help you to increase the chance of soft resetting.
It is worth noting that soft resetting will not work for most of the Pokemon that is usually used for due to some encounters being Shiny-locked. Actually, there is one situation to use this way of getting the Shiny Pokemon, Fossil Pokemon for the exact. Soft reset means saving before getting the Pokemon for the fossil.

A lot of people have talked about how to soft reset Rayquaza. The community or forum named Neo Seeker has a thread talking about this topic. In the thread, a user named anip shared his plan to soft reset Rayquaza as a replay to a user who started the thread. He said that you can try to faint Amadant Synchro Ralts in slot 1. The Pokemon A with 158 speed and intimidate can also be used. If you want to equip this Pokemon A, you can use Smoke Ball in slot 2. If intimidate active first, please ran away. In case it is not active first, please switch to Mawile with False Swipe. When you see Rayquaza is at 1HP, it means you need to switch to Pokemon B, the kind of Pokemon that uses Hypnosis. Please spam pokeballs and capture. Remember to also check IV on the web when Zennia battle starts. When the Zennia’s battle is ongoing, click on Pokemon, Rayquaza, and then check the stat with the online IV checkers.
Another user on the forum who replied the post is named Ciel Phantimhive. He explained that the first thing that you will need to do to in order to soft reset Shiny Rayquaza is to make a decision on what nature that you want and then get a Synchronizer. Then, make it paint and then place it on the first slot of your party. After that, calculate the speed for Rayquaza depending on the nature that you want. The stat will be 174 if it is a +Speed nature and it will be 159 if it is neutral. Allow the Pokemon to get a speed stat 1 point lower to that owned by Rayquaza and put it on the second slot of the party. The one is to buy PokeBalls. Please battle it. You can reset the game if your Pokemon is faster and if the extreme speed is used, you can still capture it. If you want to accommodate Rayquaza after the capture, you must transfer a Pokemon from your party and then start the battle with Zinnia. Just like that, Rayquaza will be the first one that you have on your party. Next, head over to Pokemon, Rayquaza, and Summary. You will be able to see the stats of Rayquaza but not its nature. The thing shown on the screen can be calculated with either an IV calculator or with Showdown’s Damage Calculator.
