I am pretty sure we are being provided clean end-faces, but should we be inspecting them at the installation site?


It is always highly recommended to visually inspect the connector end-faces at the installation site, immediately prior to installing into any adapters.   This should be common practice by any respectable installer.   There are many options available in lightweight inspection systems that are designed specifically for installation and include the capability of viewing connectors after installation into an adapter.
