Underlining of superscripts for abbreviation final marks is not mandatory in French; it's jjust a common (but not universal) style.

Same thing for the plural: N<sup>os</sup> or N<sup><u>os</u></sup>
It is also acceptable to find "no." and "nos." (the dot is the standard default abbreviation mark in French).
