Resolution / Answer

One known method to disable Google Search bar and/or Google Assistant is to install Enterprise Home Screen (EHS).


EHS when installed have a default configuration to bypass the Lock screen (also known as Keyguard).

If Lock Screen is enabled, to prevent use of Camera and Search from the lock screen, make sure Keyguard Camera and Keyguard Search tags are disabled.
