Truss calculation approval from city

last month

We opted for a truss based roof, however truss calculation was a deffered submittal for our permit. The GC contractor picked the truss company and they gave truss calculations, got it reviewed by structural engineer and then submitted to city. The city plan checker commented that two collector trusses had high vertical reaction and how that will be transferred to foundation. Is it normal for a SE to miss such thing while doing truss calculation review ?

Eventually the SE gave a solution by adding some hold downs and posts in the wall and we have resubmitted it to city now with this documentation but I am worried if we will get more comments that SE might have missed.
