Purpose of locking a layer

Hello, I want to request something very simple. When I lock a layer in Adobe XD, the purpose of locking is also that I can be able to move and select all the elements behind that layer. If I have a big overlay on top of my layout, I want to edit the content behind it, but all I can select is that locked layer. It makes my work process really slow because I have to find that layer in the hierarchy, make it invisible, edit, then come back to make it visible. Does it make sense?
