No, there's no automatic "empty the trash"

It's up to you; I keep my trash empty, others never empty it

There is more to not emptying the trash:

Standard search does exclude notes in the trash ! You will not see search hits from notes that are in the Trash.

However, if you explicitly choose the Trash-notebook, search will search inside of the trashed notes, and show these results.

So it sometimes come useful to trash something to still keep it, but exclude it from being searched. Because trash does not empty if not forced by User action, trashed notes will be kept practically indefinitely. Just do not forget about this before starting a housekeeping session ...
