That was my experience in the US as well but that was during the beta test so I wasn't sure it still applied. But from what Biggles says, it sounds like the US and UK differ in this respect.

My guess is that it will not come up. There is currently no instructions in the audit to look at the approvers or check signers to make sure the payee is not an approver or signer. But that doesn't change the fact that policy says the payee should not sign a check and the web site indicates that the payee shouldn't be an approver. So I wouldn't do it in the US regardless.

When I was a member of the stake audit committee, the chairman asked me to review every completed audit and comment. I frequently pointed out checks that should not have been signed by the recipient, but my comments were ignored. Auditors may still be required to inspect every cancelled check image to ensure it had two signatures.
