Floor Trusses Installed Crooked

The house I am building has some floor trusses at an angle. I hired replacement framers who already fixed dozens of other issues.
The 23/32" subfloor is glued with advantech subfloor adhesive and nailed to the trusses.

Is this necessary to fix and what would be the best way to do it?

If they are not plumb, it "might" create a small hump in the floor. You could cut them loose at the top plate and plumb them up and then renail them.

If there is no hump would you leave it be?

You're not going to get the top of the truss free so that leaves you with the bottom. You can use a reciprocating saw to cut the nails then kick the bottom of the truss over the 1/2" or whatever it needs.
