At the stern, there is frequently very little visible wash if in reverse, and no change in the engine tone when put into gear, so the uninitiated might not notice the turning propellor.

Seems unnecessary, IMHO.
One would be most in danger on the opposite side of the propwash.

Suppose signs on the stern are unnecessary because there will be propellers presumably located there with or without a thruster.
