Bend installed between trap and drain arm

Well, I thought that 90 degree bends are only allowed before the trap in the tail piece sections between the sink basins and the trap inlet. Also many traps are sold as a kit with the trap arm and maybe I am just assuming that the proper configuration is to have the trap arm connected directly to the trap outlet.

I do believe that is considered a J-Trap configuration. I was always schooled that there can only be 1 slip joint connection after the outlet of the trap. If that 90 bend going into the wall were to be schedule 40 piping, (Instead of slip joint piping) it would be ok, technically.

If there is no sings of recent leaks, I don't think I would make a big deal about this.
