Pole Building footings

I'm having pioneer pole buildings put up a 24x30 pole building. Today they came and drilled the footings. The 5 or six holes in the front of the building all have soupy mud and water in them, does anyone know if this will create a problem when they instal the concrete pill in hole with the post on top. Will this let the front of the building sink? What can be done to keep this from happening or should i wait till things dry out?

Ayuh,... As long as they're below the frost line, it shouldn't matter in the least..

I wonder if sticking some Sonotubes in there would help. Or would you want the concrete to spread out a bit more?
I hate signatures.
