Square D AFCI breaker double tapped

Hi guys/gals

I know that many or most of the Square D breakers are designed for two wires and all but the AFCI breakers do not look like the attachment is made for two wires.

Needless to say I have found one today on a new construction.

I'm thinking NOT OK but wanted to check the board before reporting.

Can the splice occur within the panel?

Thread drift...

Also, can the panel contain terminated conductors? No pic, but it looks like at one time the house had an electric range and dryer, then converted them to gas. So they terminated the conductors for each (and labeled them) and replaced the 30 amp breakers with 20's for other use. I thought I have read where you can not have terminated conductors in the panel.
