Recessed lighting in finished basement - how to wire with clearance issues

We have 6 recessed lights in our finished basement that were added after the basement was finished, the lights have LED pucks installed in them. 3 of the 6 have a typical 4 inch remodel can; for the other 3 lights, duct work was in the way and there was not enough clearance for full remodel cans. For those 3 lights there are 2 junction boxes per light, the junction boxes are connected together; the 120 volt A/C romex line goes in to the first junction box, the second junction box contains the transformer for the LED puck. The 120 v connection for the transformer is made in the "120v" junction box and then the output of the second junction box is the low voltage DC lines that drives the LED puck. The low voltage lines running from the junction box to the LED puck are exposed in the space between the flooring joists.

We want to sell our house and I am concerned that this arrangement will not meet code or pass inspection? Are there options to bring it up to code (assuming it is not to code)?

Would the inspector have to remove ceiling tiles to see it? If so, it's not really exposed. I wouldn't touch it unless something is said.

12 volt wiring can be exposed.
