No prompt regarding /etc/pmg/templates

I just upgraded my PMG 7.3 server to 8, and everything is working fine so far. The upgrade guide/wiki states the following:

If configuration templates are used in /etc/pmg/templates, you will see a prompt about the changes in the new version that are not yet incorporated. Review the changes carefully and ensure that only the changes you want are shown in the diff.

I do have a in /etc/pmg/templates with custom changes and which was last updated in 2021, but I did not see any prompt about this file during the upgrade. Are there any changes between 7 and 8 that should be removed from (or added to) this file?
The last changes should have come in with PMG 7.3 (smtputf8 support)

There were no changes between 7.3 and 8.0

I hope this helps!
