Not according the the research I have done so far. Samsung & LG (Goldstar) seem to have only RF remotes. Only the lower end names (Vizio, Hisense, TCL for example) seem to still use IR.

It doesn't matter what the remote that comes with the TV is. It could be powered my neural implants in your brain next year.

The TV "ITSELF" has IR control builtin and can be controlled by an IR remote of some sort. This is true for 100% of all the TVs made in the world right now! Or ever has been - at least since the 1980s.

There is not a single TV in the world that I'm aware of (and I'm pretty aware), that is controlled by RF only and has no IR sensor on it for additional IR control.

[edit]: Now in the future, to save a few pennies off the cost, it would not surprise me to see dumb manufacture start to remove those IR sensors. Leaving only control from the factory RF remote and IP control thru the network. But fortunately we are not there yet.
