Sadly I have heard that same recommendation from more than one vendor and it is even printed in some vendor documentation for databases on SQL Server.
From one particular vendor, heavily paraphrased for clarity: "We implemented horrible ORM practices so we update every record everywhere every time you update a single attribute in a table four levels down. Due to this, our log files explode inside of an hour. Please don't have any chance of recovering your data because this is the standard we've chosen. Do differential backups hourly if you're concerned. Have a nice day."
