    Glue the glue blocks back on

    Maybe some slight cracking just above where the bottom edge of the riser is screwed into the back of the tread in photo 2? Either way doesn't look to be an issue

    if it bothers you that much, cut 9/12mm plywood to the riser size, glue & screw it to the back of the risers and use longer screws into the tread
