Drywall down to cement
I recently added an entryway that has 20 inch footings. The drywallers left a 1/2 inch gap between the footings and the drywall. I assumed the would drywall all the way down to the top of the footings but they didn't. Is there a reason you can't or shouldn't do this? If so what can I fill the gap with because I can't use wood trim in these spots. Is there a special material needed?

Use pvc trim. Yes, drywall installation is correct. If you run it to the ground it will wick water into the drywall and mold will make a very bad day for you.
