1-2x6 Stud Cut Through on load bearing wall. 2 top plates still in tact.

I hired a contractor to build some office space in a warehouse space with a second floor mezzanine. Long story short I've noticed there was 1-2x6 stud cut at the top of the 2x6 on a 14 foot wide load bearing wall (Looks like the Fire Sprinkler Installer Cut through the stud to hang his 3" pipe from the floor joists above and that 2x6 seemed to be in the way).

The two sandwiched 2x6's making the top plate supporting the i-Joists at the top of the wall have not been touched. The stud and floor i-Joist system was framed @ 19.2 On Center. So now in one section of that wall the closest 2x6 studs are 38.4" apart, with the Sandwiched 2x6's top plate spanning the 38.4".

Is this a cause for concern?
