ConnectCore6UL 256-256-W-BT without antenna - can it be damaged?

Can the ConnectCore6UL 256-256-W-BT be damaged if operating the WIFI without an antenna connected?

Another way of asking this is - does ConnectCore6UL 256-256-W-BT have antenna detection?

My expectation is that there is no antenna detection and the WIFI can cook itself if transmitting without an antenna. We consider this a possible situation during manufacturing test of a product using the ConnectCore6UL 256-256-W-BT module and it would reduce 'hassle' and concern if it was actually safe to operate in this mode - without an antenna.

it is fine to operate without an antenna. There should be no effect on heating with or without antenna
