Is this an acceptable way to vent bathroom exhaust?

We recently had two new bathroom exhaust fans installed. When taking a look in the attic, I saw that the contractor brought the duct work right up to our gable vent rather than directly connecting the ducts to the exterior with their own vent caps. (And yep, the duct tape holding together the one to the right stopped holding it together, so that'll need to be dealt with regardless.)




Is this an acceptable way to vent bathroom exhaust? I know you can't vent into the attic -- but I can't tell if this could be considered close enough to the vent that it's not actually going into the attic. Grateful for any help/advice.
