When you dispute OC accounts, certain aspects of the account are taken out of scoring including the balance, CL and payment history. Other aspects such as AAoA, credit mix, account age are still scored.
CAs and PR are not removed and fully scored.
It is accurate for the credit profile it is scoring and once the complaint is resolved it will update to reflect any changes.
Yes, the lender will see that score and would probably require the dispute not only be resolved but the comment removed.

Okay I was asking because I'm applying for a auto loan and I like what my score went up to while the accounts are in dispute
Just know that even if FICO is artificially increased for up to a month, lenders can still see and factor in those disputed accounts.

And I don't know if myfico site is delayed but I was just notified today by equifax that my disputes were resolved but myfico score is the same score that it went up to. But nothing was removed or updated so I'm confused
What kind of accounts were disputed? It's possible that FICO still sees the accout as being in dispute. Even if the dispute ends, the OC could have notated it in a way where the dispute comment is still within the comments section. Again, that depends on what was disputed and what it says now.
myFICO is the consumer division of FICO.
