Is this ok for vent. 90 goes vertical up to attic. The cap closet to frame is for future laundry vent tie-in. The pipe going back goes to the fixtures being vented.

No dry flat vents allowed in IPC. A vent cannot go horizontal until it is a min of 6 inches above the flood level rim of the fixture served.

It's 6" above the flood rim. I've decided to do a double elbow fitting there instead

If it's a dry vent, it would pass UPC inspection. UPC does not require slope or drainage fittings on dry vents.
But, as a personal thing, I would use a 90 instead of the tee and place the tee, or a wye between the 90's
