Not for me, I have 999 in the queue configuration and get:

$ qstat -f
queuename                      qtype resv/used/tot. load_avg arch          states
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
a at b             BIPC  0/0/999        0.01     lx24-x86      
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
a at c             BIPC  0/0/999        0.01     lx24-x86      

If it would lower the output here, it would also mean to have a user specific limit shown because of:

   limit        users reuti hosts {*} to slots=$num_proc
   limit        users soft hosts {*} to slots=$num_proc-2


which I defined.
