Soil stack flashing

we've just had some repairs done on our roof, replacing of tiles,
roof liner has been patched and some batons replaced.

However, he's made some repairs around the soil stack but we can't see any flashing, when i queried this he said "oh that's the old way of doing it" (pointing to all my neighbors roofs with the visible flashing.)
He said he's tucked it underneath "out of the way"

Anybody know if this is right, wrong or indifferent?

I've had a bit of a search on the net but no definitive answer.... :-/

If he's used a lead slate or a pitched 'multi-slate' then the lower part of the lead should be visible whilst the uppermost part is tucked under the the higher courses.
There's no flashing visible at all, it looks like he's just tiled up to it?
I just got up into the loft and there's nothing visible in there either.

What I'm worried about is that he's not actually used any flashing and is fobbing me off...
