Well, even if you do find the thread, it's incorrect, as I've been playing the Telltale version, and it doesn't have Steamworks integration at all. Not even if I launch it through Steam.
I downloaded and installed the Steam version, got my unlocks instantly. So the only way to get your unlocks in TF2 is to play the Steam version. Period.
