No, I'm pretty sure it is turned off, because I waited almost a day. 
Moreover, rabbitmq process disappeared from task manager.

To be more precise, I tried to create a lot of exchanges.

Here is the code I used:

using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;

namespace RabbitMQ_helper
     class Program
         static void Main(string[] args)
             ConnectionFactory factory = new ConnectionFactory();
             factory.UserName = "admin";
             factory.Password = "password";
             factory.HostName = "";

             IConnection conn = factory.CreateConnection();

             IModel channel = conn.CreateModel();
             for (int i = 0; i < 1000000; ++i)
                 channel.ExchangeDeclare("C#_" + i, ExchangeType.Direct);
