In this vids, change to close position happened during lunge, that's probably most common way to do it, lots competitive couple do it same way. Katusha also teach the guys after lock, put the weight solidly on left foot-shape to left before lunge to right more better balance and shaping.

If you are talking about a single lock (12&3, lunge on RF on 1 next bar), you need to close before the 3, so on the &.
This is closest to what I would do (many options)... but I would change from PP to closed on the 2, like in a progressive chase from PP to closed. It seems a much better entry to the lunge to be closed...

Good point. The change in shape would likely be easier in a place where good balance is possible (ex. while in the lunge with the foot flat on the floor). Maybe not so easy to switch dance positions as both partners are locking and on the balls of the feet. It is not impossible however, and its good to have variations.
