Sure, but for the most it is hidden behind thin veils of explanation. Nothing like space-brat though. That was just a neon sign that said "we have no idea how to end this series". Also, complexity of the story helped people overlook a lot of tiny errors.

They're simply reinstated to their operate outside the law status.

It were the multiple unaddressed faults in logic which were simply accepted which made Bioware think they could get away with ME3's original ending.
