stand-off plates?

My builder just replaced the brick posts supporting my gazebo, with four 6 inch cedar posts. They are installed on a cement base and then covered with dirt. He didn't install stand-off plates. I asked why and he said the posts will last 50 years that way and didn't need the stand-off plates. Should I be concerned?
