Fisheye/Crucible Git LFS - Avoiding large text diffs Edited

I have a Fisheye/Crucible server (3.8.1 going to 4.X later in 2018) and we're looking at putting in a standalone git-lfs server until we pull the lever to get BitBucket Server.  We have some large text files in our repositories that are used for unit and system testing.

In a recent case, we had a 51MB text file chopped down to under our 1MB file limit and that caused Crucible to freak out trying to diff it.

If I do not install the git-lfs client extensions on my Fisheye/Crucible server, will that prevent the large files from being fetched by Fisheye and Crucible trying to load the file for viewing? I'm hoping that without the git-lfs client extension, Fisheye/Crucible will just see the pointer object and keep on going.
