You are talking about the typical practice like tilt-up wall panels that may or may not be stacked during concrete placement and during erection the slab dowels are pulled up from the surface to between 45 to 90 degrees creating slab dowels. Back construction days when I built 50 -100 projects with panels using this system. You could say it was the standard in the LA /Southern California area.
Still to this day I see it being used all over. Yes a better engineering solution would be to use a screw in dowel such as Richmond came up with in the mid seventies. But getting the contractor to use them was near to impossible. The cost of each assemblage cost and how to hold in place during the pouring process. They were more accepted for cast-in-place walls and slabs where you had a surface to secure them to.
