Zapping a lock class happens every time a lock key is unregistered. That
can happen any time as one can see in the following grep output:

$ git grep -lw 'lockdep_unregister_key'
drivers/net/bonding/bond_main.c:4446:
lockdep_unregister_key(&bond->stats_lock_key);
drivers/net/team/team.c:1676: lockdep_unregister_key(&team->team_lock_key);
drivers/net/team/team.c:1984: lockdep_unregister_key(&team->team_lock_key);
include/linux/lockdep.h:294:extern void lockdep_unregister_key(struct
lock_class_key *key);
include/linux/lockdep.h:464:static inline void
lockdep_unregister_key(struct lock_class_key *key)
kernel/locking/lockdep.c:5166:void lockdep_unregister_key(struct
lock_class_key *key)
kernel/locking/lockdep.c:5201:EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(lockdep_unregister_key);
kernel/workqueue.c:3456: lockdep_unregister_key(&wq->key);
net/core/dev.c:9172: lockdep_unregister_key(&dev->qdisc_tx_busylock_key);
net/core/dev.c:9173: lockdep_unregister_key(&dev->qdisc_running_key);
net/core/dev.c:9174: lockdep_unregister_key(&dev->qdisc_xmit_lock_key);
net/core/dev.c:9175: lockdep_unregister_key(&dev->addr_list_lock_key);
net/core/dev.c:9183: lockdep_unregister_key(&dev->qdisc_xmit_lock_key);
net/core/dev.c:9184: lockdep_unregister_key(&dev->addr_list_lock_key);
tools/lib/lockdep/include/liblockdep/common.h:48:void
lockdep_unregister_key(struct lock_class_key *key);
tools/lib/lockdep/include/liblockdep/mutex.h:58:
lockdep_unregister_key(&lock->key);
