I'm usually the one to get anal about things like this but not here. This is only a support wall for the porch. Sometihng to get down below frost level. i have built archy specified jobs with a separate wall just like this. There is no need even to have that block there except to separate teh ompactable draining soild within the section from the friable drainage material on the outside of the wall. Teh gaps could be intentional so that in the even water finds a way to the interior section under the porch slab, it can weep out to the drian tiles.
I agree it looks bad, but given the design and non loading it is intended for, I see nothing to complain about.
Excellence is its own reward!
