Builders are not responsible to follow ceiling height codes in unfinished basements.

BUT,, if some ducts are very low where you can hit your head then they usually put in a small wall to pass occupancy.

Finishing a basement properly always requires HVAC work but then again, most basements are not finished properly.

Bulkheads are a fact of life unless you have a very high ceiling. The key is to plan the basement so that the bulkheads do not look out of place.
