The answer at this StackOverflow question clearly explains that the Material Design guidelines recommend showing the bottom navigation (or tab bar, as iOS calls it) on subpages.

Is the same practice recommended on iOS (or at least the norm, if there are no official guidelines)?

Yes, it is the same with iOS and the tab bar should be visible everywhere.

Don't hide a tab bar when people navigate to different areas in your app. A tab bar enables global navigation for your app, so it should remain visible everywhere.
