Even if the target is within Double D scan, the seeker is not being slewed to the target, you'll only get a SW lock after the seeker hits the target on it's usual search pattern.

With radar lock or not, CAGE/SEAM behaves exactly the same in DCS. Don't know if it's realistic or not, but my guess it's a bug.

Everyone, I believe the AIM-9 employment modes in the F-14 are featured correctly.

Although I admit that they don't look so modern (or straight forward) with "auto-lock" kind of features and such, like aircraft as F-16 and so on.

It doesn't immediately lock the missile's seekerhead on target - it scans about it - even Fleet Defender depicted it that way.

Roughly this:

Boresight mode : seeker looking at ADL - press Cage/SEAM to lock
Boresight SCAN mode : seeker scans about ADL - press Cage/SEAM to lock
Radar / TV / IR SCAN mode : seeker scans about Radar, TV or IR track - press Cage/SEAM to lock

Please keep in mind that the F-14 was a pioneer in several matters as new avionics / HUD symbols / etc, and as such many of the actual procedures were somewhat archaic.

The bold is stated that much at plane's documents throughout the web.
Check the diagrams below.
