In any professional package, using the manual point-to-point routing protocol will automatically generate traces compliant with your constraints, or at the very least, flag a DRC error if you violate them. It's not something you can miss unless you're so bad that you (a) didn't set up the constraints, (b) willfully ignored the errors, or (c) didn't bother running DRC. Unless they're using something which DOESN'T have constraints for capture/layout/routing, in which case, yeah, they probably shouldn't be doing a board this big with that kind of tool.
