Mating Nuc question

1170 1
If you have a mating nuc with a laying queen that completely fills up all frames, will it start making swarm cells. I am thinking this hive with no space will start to make swarm cells due to lack of room fairly fast. Am I correct with this thinking?

Ran out of nucs and had a cut out that was small, so just dumped it into a mating nuc. Most of the comb was not recoverable so only have 5 of the 1/2 size frames with brood in it. Not sure if the queen is there, will know in a day or so.
