No. The joints should be taped and floated (mud, not plaster) several times so that the surfaces of the sheetrock conform. Then sanded to get rid of anything that will show. Then they apply a texture to match the existing surface. This texture can be applied so that the repair is invisible. May take some skill and a couple of applications to get it right, but it can be done so that you will never see it, even if you know it is there. Then the paint can be matched perfectly to the existing wall color. If it is off simply repaint the wall from corner to corner, and you will not see any color change. The paint job extends down almost to the floor, depending upon how much they care. Then the base board covers the paint job as the last thing done. Sometime earlier, they should have gotten the baseboard back into finished condition so that it can be attached. Patch a couple of nail holes, touch up paint and it is finished. What is goin on is that the repair is low and hard to do if they have a belly. On their hands and knees. Awkward.
