    Looks like that is a through wall flashing.

    You can see the edges of more of it along that same bottom of the mortar joint.

    I agree, but why in the world would you put flashing that high up on the wall, and without weeps?

    Maybe, but it was only on the right garage wall, no where else. Just makes no sense to me.

    For the same reason you put one, are required to put one, at the top of the brick veneer below a window opening - to prevent water from entering the top of the veneer and the air space behind it.

    None is needed where the veneer goes all the way up the wall and ends under an overhang - that top is well protected by the overhang, but, as shown in the photo, there is a frame wall above and water could very easily enter into the brick veneer from it.

    That sounds reasonable, I've just not noticed it before.
