Electric box appears to be in wrong Place

Electric outlet rear is in shower framing. Seems wrong to me, but I know ZERO about this stuff. Builder says it is fine. Find it hard to believe you would have box under shower valve etc as shown. Appreciate your comments

There is no code issue. Pipes are run near wires and boxes all the time without issues.

The box location is well within code. The only problem I can see there is the horizontal run of NM-b cable should have been centered in the stud.
