Is this a problem? I don't see anything in the ipc that says cold water lines must be insulated in a building. It does mention about protection of lines from freezing but nothing but inside a building.
Condensation can be a problem, depending on where the moisture is coming from. A dryer that isn't vented outside or a leak behind a wall are good sources. Leaking foundations, etc. Too much moisture and the house rots and the mold goes everywhere.
I see a lot of bathrooms with no fans, or fans that aren't used, and they call me because there are puddles under the toilet and they think it's leaking. This is usually accompanied by black mold on the ceiling over the shower.
