In the Simplified UI, when trying to add an attachment on a Custom Object record, clicking on the field for attachments and the "+" icon to add, the Attachments pop-up window is displayed and also a pop-up message in the background:

"You do not have permission to add a new attachment."

The Browse button is just missing from the window, shows: No data available.
