it's not because Intel decided to maliciously lock out Rocket Lake support for the two budget chipsets.
The reason why H410 and B460 do not support Rocket Lake processors is that the chipsets are based on a different and older 22nm process node.

Seems unlikely. There's no reason the motherboard chipset and the CPU need to be on the same process node. If you go back to Haswell/Broadwell and older, most Intel motherboards supported two generations of CPU on different process nodes. If you look at AMD processors, they even have dies from different process nodes in the same CPU.

The CPU and chipset are already on different nodes seeing as Intel's CPUs have been on 14nm for 5 years or so.
