Default Temperature wall function for incompressible solver

Hagen is on a distinguished road

Is it correct that it is not necessary to use a wall function for the temperature equation when a incompressible solver (modified simpleFoam) is used?
I am curious because there is no such wall function available in OpenFOAM and I got good coherence with the log law for the temperature profile without an explicit wall function for the Temperature.

Thank you for your support,
