framing a door


I am finishing the rest of my basement and started to put up NON LOAD bearing walls.
I noticed that the walls that the contractor built in the basement have no jack studs in doorways and the header is attached directly to the king studs.

Is this normal? is there a disadvantage to doing this for the rest of the basement?

Why do you even need a jack stud in a non load bearing wall?

no youdo not need any jack studs or"cripples" in the basement walls but most contractors would just to keep their doorways solid and plumb but he may have framed that way to conserve on materials
