Not correct... They stopped using them as much, but that was due to the advent of the Jetway... However, they installed what they called a "DB Copper Valve" that was a Spring loaded vane that with Airflow would prevent the Aft Airstair from being deployed in the air.... It was still considered an emergency exit, so they could not seal it off.

Thanks for sharing.... that appears to be a 727-100 as it as the JT8D-7B on them. the 200's had mostly -17's. Much much stronger engines.
