They do notice. And if you try to roll back migration, you'll see that
machines that once logged in to AD no longer able to login to old domain.
The only part that visible changes is the default suffix, and in default
Windows configuration, it is changed automatically once the system joins AD
for the first time.

Said the above, your configuration only works, because you do not have older
systems in your network, that do not understand periods in workgroup names.
In all other cases, you could have left the workgroup as it once was.
