I was at the same event, in the morning session of the two. The Chief Building Official was Roger Sharpe of City of Walnut Creek. He is active in ICBO code formulation activities. As I recall, he said that the galvanizing was important only when the preservative treated wood was subject to being wet, which is not a routine condition in mudsills of habitable buildings. I gathered he would not enforce that code provision for normally dry building walls. As the code says, the building official is empowered to interpret the code... Unfortunately, engineers acting as experts in matters like this in liability accusations tend to declare their own interpretations, which may take no heed of what the local building official deems the code to mean.
