If your child was born between 34-36 weeks, were they automatically taken to the NICU? If so, how long were they there?

My first was born at 34+6 and was automatically taken to the NICU. We passed that milestone yesterday with baby 2 and I seem to remember them telling me that if we had made it to 35 weeks the NICU would have only been as needed. Curious about other experiences.
