Could the owners just "lift" the lockout in January?

What is written is that either party, should they wish to terminate the CBA (and thereby give themselves a legal strike/lockout position) must give notice 120 in advance of the CBA expiring. If this is not done, the agreement is extended for a year, and neither side can engage in a strike or lockout. But, the owners CLEARLY gave notice 120 before Sept. 15. Now, what if they decided to lock the players out on Oct. 1, or right before the season started, what rules would have applied then? It is the current CBA, guaranteed.
