Floating Basement Walls

I have seen this method on most channels for floating basement walls.

However this is something that I just ran across. His baseplate are attached to the subfloor and there is no direct connection to the concrete. I imagine this is fine since these are not load bearing walls. Any issues anyone can see with this? Would a building or electrical inspector have any issues with floating walls in Ontario?

Unless you are in an area that has expansive clay, I wouldn't worry about it.
There are a whole host of other details relating to moisture infiltration that are a much bigger issue, and are going to affect your basement.
