Is this flashing install wrong...or stupidly?

Question? Why would you lay brick on top of flashing? Seems like if you laid brick on top of flashing, you could never replace the flashing. Also any water that leaks through that mortar will be spilled behind the wall. My house is one of very few in the neighborhood like this. 90% of the rest have the flashing ON TOP of the brick and ON TOP on the shingles.

It needs counterflashing / stepflashing that is tuck pointed into the brick.
