Does HipChat Basic remind you that've hit the 25,000 message history limit?

In Slack's free plan, if you hit 10,000 messages in the server, then it will show a banner at the top of your screen every time you log in / open the web page, reminding you that you can't search beyond 10,000 messages into the past and that you can upgrade to a paid plan.

It's just one click to dismiss the reminder, but it's a bit annoying in its frequency. Just wondering if HipChat Basic has a similar reminder at 25,000+ messages, and how often it would appear.

I don't believe any banners are shown by default anywhere (although that doesn't preclude them from potentially being shown in the future).
