They are correct, 2 gounds under a lug - OK, 2 neutrals - Not OK,
That said. I have been in the home rehab, selling, flipping for 25+ years,, inspectors have tanked more closings over non issues than anyone else.

We will do a cosmetic rehab (roof, int/ext painting, cabinets, etc) on a 1960s house,, get a contract, the buyers inspector sends the usual list of "not to code" (GFIs, railings, etc).
Our response is "please send us a copy of the code from 1962 when this house was built"
There are a few really good inspectors, most are the franchise clowns that do not have a clue.

Now that said,,, if the request are minor,, we will take care of them to shove the sale through.

And having said that,,, My youngest (18) is going into the electrical trade.

I have the cover off so I just now took a look inside of my 200 amp Challenger panel, approved by the Calvert Country inspector James Dowell on 1-12-1990, and it’s like yours. It even has neutrals and grounds landed together under one screw on the neutral bars. Gasp. Oh, the humanity.

Someone over the last 30 years could have added breakers to the panel...

Common practice but became a separate NEC violation in 2002. Well, really it was a violation prior to that but for not following manufacture's instruction on terminating wires.
