must to over looked that. sorry have not flown DJI or other similar motors with build in threads yet. even on prop adapters. it dint bother me since I make sure they are bolted tight before flight. before that I was flying my 450 on prop savers.

Having reverse threaded prop shafts will minimize the probability of the prop nut loosening in flight.

True. I don't even bother with lock nuts. I just use locktite or a tiny drop of "super glue".

some shafts come unthreaded, just plain shaft thus the need to use prop adapters lock nuts cant be used with plain shafts

We were talking about those CW and CCW prop adapters, hence the discussion was on threaded shafts.

I think we're confusing motor shafts and prop shafts. We're talking about prop shafts. Motor shafts are never threaded while prop shafts are always threaded, afaik.
