Disable user accounts on Unix, Linux resorces

Hi Everyone

I try to understand disable user account action on Unix, Linux systems

In Resource reference doc. I see the next:

Linux does not natively support Waveset enable and disable actions.
Waveset simulates enabling and disabling accounts by changing the
user password. The changed password is exposed on enable actions,
but it is not exposed on disable actions.
As a result, enable and disable actions are processed as update actions.
Any before or after actions that have been configured to operate on
updates will execute.

So what kind of commands waveset using for this action:

passwd -l <Username>
or just change password?
