I've noticed some sites that say they use https don't have a lock icon. Apparently in this situation only certain parts of the site are encrypted. Anyone have any true knowledge of what this situation means?

Depends on the browser you're using, if there's no padlock at all, nothing should be encrypted. If there's a padlock labeled by a slash or a warning sign, then something is encrypted and something not, depending on the site visited (could be images, scripts, etc.).
This is about firefox:
