That is definitely a violation.
The other two pictures of insulation piercing connectors may be fine.
The use of these inside the enclosure is fine, what I do not know is what they are feeding and the where the overcurrent protection is for the tapped conductors.
You say the main feed is 2/0 AL and it looks like the connector says 1/0 to 8.
A couple of questions
1) Did you see that the wire leaving the breaker is 2/0?
2) These connectors should have two ratings one for the tap and another for the run.
Run 4/0 to 1
Tap 1/0 to 8
