Two Toilet Questions

I inspected a one year old house last week and the owner was concerned about the toilet tank being directly up against the wall. He is a part time plumber and told me that the tank cannot be against the wall due to possible condensation/moisture issues. I know that normal building standards would indicate that you should not do this but is this considered a major defect?

He also told me that when they install a toilet that touches the wall, the company he works for goes back and installs an offset toilet flange. I thought the inside diameter on a offset toilet flange was less then the 3" minimum allowed. Is this one of those situations where you can install it but it is not desirable?
