This is still being worked upon. I hope to have more details in the next couple months.
Please know the team is actively working on this feature.

Currently if you have the Teams app set to run in the background upon clicking the “X” in the upper right, the app stays active only in the system tray. If you receive chat messages, it still remains in the SysTray.
However, if you get an @mention, the focus pulls it to the Taskbar. This is by design since you are getting directly mentioned and some action is typically expected. This is a key design element which the team does not wish to deviate from.
We appreciate the suggestion but will respectively decline it at this time.
Thank you for the feedback and suggestion.

I had voted for this, then discovered just close the app and it doesn't really close, which is fine for me, it's worth knowing this before you vote. I admit it should do that skype warning thing on close, but hey.
