The Answer is yes.
 
In my experience, more and more jurisdictions in Northern California are asking for this.  They usually seem satisfied with "no exceptions taken, did not observe any conditions contrary to the design or something to that effect." so long as they have a piece of paper in the file that the SER has seen the project.  Sometimes they want such a notation entered on the inspection card (have had this request three times recently from City of SF).
