I don't think the code applies here..assuming you're talking about a
support angle with anchors drilled into masonry or concrete. If so, it's
not a steel-to-steel connection, so you couldn't realistically expect to
develop much pretension (clamping force). I think it'd probably be in
bearing soon after you started construction.

Yes, it is designed as a bearing connection. The point, however, is
that this is common construction that does not meet the letter of the
code, but in my opinion is still adequate to transfer the loads.
