Yes, a message will pop up if you venture too far into a planet in Starfield, but you really have to do whatever it takes to find it.

If you only go one way about 15 or 20 minutesa popup will appear saying that you have reached the planet border and you have three options: fast travel to the ship, open the planet map or cancel the popup (see image below).
