Brass compression fittings

I did a new construction townhome today. At the water heater, instead of finding dielectric fittings at the supply lines, the plumber used brass compression fittings.

Is this type of fitting allowed or is this a new type of fitting? Thanks for your help.

I don't know what the ruling is, but I know I've used those compression fittings on 1/2" copper and they are fine. Better than solder for hooking up a woodstove water jacket.

I don't think I'd trust the new push and twist fittings, but have never used them, either.
