Yes, and, in fact, on any message. See Per-Message TTL on

Messages are not stored in exchanges. Exchanges act as routing tables that move messages
to one or more queues. If TTL has expired, a message is deleted from the queue.

If the message was routed to a queue with TTL = 2h and consumer comes around in 1h, then it will be delivered.

After 1 hr If a new client subscribes for the messages with bindingKey =”match” by creating a new Queue ..will the new client get the same message
No, standard exchanges do not keep a history of messages, so newly bound queues only get messages
published after the binding is set up.
