Except for the fire stop that is out of place and the insulation too close to the flue pipe, all looks fine to me.

Oh, I see. That would be the chase/roof intersection? Firestop not required that I know of. That is kind of strange.

Looks to me that the metal collar was too small to span the opening so they rotated it enough to nail into the roof trusses. This looks to be a collar used simply to maintain clearance from the combustible wood. I've been a HVAC installer for the past 12 years.
