Unlocked phone bloatware

I unlocked my old m8 and att gave me a code, except I never had to use it when I reset the phone. It works on my new network but still has all of the att bloatware and startup animation, unlike my s8 that changed carrier animation and apps once att unlocked it. Did I miss something?

Carrier Unlocking just allows the phone to work on compatible non At&t networks.  That’s all.  It has nothing to do with the included apps or software.
