Joints in top and bottom plates in basement

Do joints in top and bottom plates in basement framing need to be offset or a certain distance from corners? I understand in a load bearing wall they would, but do they need to be for a basement wall that is just supporting sheetrock?

There is no code that covers that on an interior non load bearing wall. Do what you like.
