It's just static pages. All the code is in your Gitlab/GitHub repo. I wouldn't call Netlify a walled garden, but the workflow definitely does not imply a situation where you'd lose your data in the unlikely event that Netlify goes down or closes shop.

I don't see any vendor lock in evident in any of this. Plenty of flexibility to both move your git code to your own self hosted git, and quite easy to host it on your own webserver on DO or wherever instead of Netlify.
