GlobalProtect Inactivity Timer - is HIP Profile required?

So in the configuration of GlobalProtect ( v8.0.5, under Network > Globalprotect > Gateways > (gateway name) > Agent tab > Timeout Settings)  There's an 'inactivity logout' setting, that has a description of 'Users are logged out of GP when the gateway doesn't receive a HIP check from the GP app in the time specified'.  

My question is, does this mean that the inactivity timer will only apply if there is a license for, and HIP profiles are configured and enforced?

The client will send HIP to the firewall regardless of licensing. You only need additional license to use this information in a profile/policy...

That's what I assumed, but wanted to confirm. Than you very much!
