Skylight framed and installed in trussed roof


I am looking at a home to purchase and upon entering a scuttle attic I noticed that two manual vented skylights were installed in a trussed roof where cuts were made to accomodate the widths. The roof load appears to have been redistributed by using 2x6 doubled up in a Z pattern. Is this acceptable? There is no visible sag in the ridge, decking etc.

Without a picture it's hard to say.
I know in my area without an engineer signing off on this one, I'd get my wrist slapped by the inspector.

The home was re-roofed 2 yrs ago with all new decking. This pic was taken with the old decking removed and the skylight framing can be seen in the shot.
