Do I need to assign a license to Room mailboxes in Exchange Online?

We are in a hybrid deployment environment. We create a mailbox on-premise in Exchange 2013, migrate it to Exchange online and then convert it to type Room.

Do I need to assign a license to the mailbox after I convert it to type Room?

thank you

Resource mailboxes do not require a license.

Understanding licenses for non-user mailboxes

You don’t need to assign licenses to resource mailboxes, room mailboxes, and shared mailboxes, except when they are over their storage quota of 50 gigabytes (GB).

So it doesn't matter where or how I create a mailbox? Once it is converted to a room the license can be removed if it was assigned?

yep, once it is converted it no longer needs a license, so you should be able to remove it.
