There are many discussions on if mounting holes should be plated or if they should include vias. This is not asking about those issues.
I've seen suggestions to add solder to the annular ring on the mounting holes. This, possibly in conjunction with serrated screw heads, was suggested as a way to lock the screws. I've also seen such solder bumps on some computer motherboards.
Is this actually known to help? What does it help with specifically? Can it hurt? Should it only be on the screw head side?
I can imagine a couple places where this is not wanted; like if you care about accurate dimensions of the holes for mounting heatsinks.
Assuming it is desired, what is the optimal solder pattern? A bunch of bumps around the hole? Or a thin flat solder layer like you'd get with HASL finish?
Also, do different PCB copper finishes/platings change this at all?
