Plinth Block Height

When casing in a door opening that opens to rooms with different floor heights, should the plinth block be cut to keep the height parallel across the top of the two plinths blocks or should the plinth block be kept the same size regardless of floor height?

(I haven't nailed in the blocks awaiting feedback)

I would say it is a matter of preference. I would rather see the tops at a level height.

I agree - make the tops look level - it stands out more the way it looks now than if they were of different sizes with level tops.
