I was a carpenter builder all my life.
It partly depends where you are as the truss will be built for different live loads. By the great lakes or Iowa. In all my life I have never removed snow from a well built roof and do not recall anyone I know in the business doing it either.

Do you have a reason to be worried that you have not told us?

Do you get ice dams?

Based on what you have told us do not worry.

Basically no real ice dams, but if I left the deep snow there for 3 weeks then yes, a heavy layer of ice say, 5" thick would be at the eves. But, I raked off the first 4 feet of snow off the west side of the house. Tomorrow I will do the east side of the house. I am smarter now then 10 years ago, and I was able to get a roof rake a few years back, they sell out quick in blizzard conditions. A roof rake is the cheapest tool you can buy for what it does. Beats the crap out of using a ladder and a shovel.
