Are you sure you are looking in the right spot? The "Lock on" preset you mentioned is an Optics effect, so will be found under the Optics engine. I mention this because you mentioned having trouble with particle presets in your topic, and if you were looking in the particle presets for that particular effect, you would indeed not be able to find it.
