Door stop on pocket door?

I am finishing some pocket doors I installed in my basement as part of a basement finishing project. Is it customary to use door stops on the strike jamb or the top (split) jamb?

I use stop molding on either side of the door strike side, mainly for privacy issues. Usually quarter round or square stock does well, just enough for the door to seat. You can carry that molding around on the top split to make it look more uniform.
