You shouldn't assume that Replicant makes your device 100% free, because it does not. Devices running Replicant all still run proprietary software, to a different extent. Some still have proprietary bootloaders, some don't (e.g. GTA04) but all of them have chips that run preinstalled proprietary firmwares and a proprietary modem operating system. As a side note, to be complete on that topic, on Samsung devices, the modem firmware (non-free) is actually loaded by Replicant onto the modem (it is not distributed with the system but is rather preinstalled on the phone).
