Plinth block/ carpet concern

I was not paying attention to what I was doing an nailed my plinth blocks as they sat on the subfloor. Do I need to pull them off and allow for the carpet gap?

If the carpet peeps want it off the ground they will cut it with a jamb saw.

If it were me I would cut them myself. I have seen some carpet guys really butcher things when they are careless or have poor quality blades / tools.

Yes, Some guys WILL do better work than others. OP 'may' have some top-notch guys doing his carpets...
