Missing Target Local Server in Job

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

SQL Server 2016 Enterprise, CU15 + GDR.

Client recently started using OPCON in production and I noticed that when OPCON creates jobs, it doesn’t add the Local Server as the target. This prevents the job from executing.

Is there anyway to determine if a specific job doesn’t have any target server defined as is the case above?
