depends...

I was in one cat 4 (no 5's here) race where guys would ride off the front to pee before catching back on. This was a 20 mile headwind stretch at the start of the race, and they said what they were doing, so nobody really cared. But then, eventually somebody just kept riding...

Usually if there is a non tactical stretch near the start like that you can get an organized pee break where everybody stops. Sometimes not everybody stops, but that isn't a good idea if you plan on doing more than one race. Other races that start with a big climb or something, pee after you get dropped.

Organizers may care if the course is near houses, locals don't like to look out the window and see 100 guys peeing. Ask at the start, and getting everyone thinking about a break will make it easier to get people organized to stop.
