We just recently had a standing-seam metal roof installed, and I was up there today looking it over and noticed that there are screws into the flashing around several pipes and vents on the roof. I had been under the impression that standing-seam roofs generally shouldn't be pierced with exposed fasteners anywhere. Was I wrong, or did the installer do this wrong? If it's an installation mistake, how bad are the consequences, and what should I do now? (Concerning the roof, not the installer).

This is called a Dektite flashing and they are pretty commonly used.,

Looks about like this? Very commonly used and nothing to worry about if done properly.
