[Courses] [C] A question on locking

I have been working on a tutorial on file locking for the mailing list, but 
I have one question that I am wondering: 

When a file descriptor is locked with fcntl() or flock(), I would imagine 
that all FILE streams opened on that file descriptor would also be 
subject to the locking. Is this true? Because I read that locking only 
affects read() and write() system calls, and it said nothing about 
stdio functions
