[rsyslog] Question about $MaxMessageSize

I would like to know how $MaxMessageSize works.
Is the message just silently truncated ?
Is there any trace or any counter about truncated messages ?
Using TCP, not RELP, I speculate that  the message is acknowledged to the sender before being truncated by rsyslog.
Is that correct ?
If I set  $ MaxMessageSize on a central server, is there any risk of disturbance on the clients ?
How can I find which default size is used on a particular rsyslog instance (possibly included  very old versions) ?

Best regards
