Where's the vent for the toilet and drain lines for the sink?

The pipe on the back wall is the vent and the sink drain line.

You answered your own question.
The 2" pipe is the wc vent. The 1.5" horizontal line is for the lav. It drains into the wc vent- AKA, a vertical wet vent.

I'm guessing the drain line against the block wall is for your sink and above the "tee" is its vent line. Not sure where the vent for the toilet is, can't see through concrete.

I'm thinking that should have been boxed in and not fully cemented in. Sticking up that far, and then the need for a flange on top, may bring you too high.

If this is the case, you may have to bust out the concrete to get things to fit perfectly.

Question: should the toilet flang sit ON TOP of the tile, or be Flush with the tile?

I'm not a "pro" but the size of the toilet bottom may not be as important as the center of the drain being 15" from the finished wall. I'm pretty sure that's code around here!

This has come up alot lately, and although Eplumber doesn't want to bite, the consensus from most of the pros is "level with finished floor. I would set the flange in dry, then tile around it, then you can set the flange for finished floor elevation.

Do you mean from the back or laterally? Typical offset for flange is 12" from the back. 15" may be the lateral offset from a wall.
