I would flag it. Depends on the location of the building.State, slope of the grading surrounding the residence, etc.
Yes the CMU should have been mortared in. CMU under Torsion may tip or ware with friction caused by the movement from the home.
Yes the CMU is not set in line with the beam to access the most surface area for bearing load.
That being said.
Foundation code is specific in several States , if not all.
I would flag this if I was in a state that had higher than normal seismic activatey and it was code.
The CMU will move and the friction will decompose its structure, degrading it laoding ability.
