more about non-load bearing wall & mudsill

Dear Sirs,

I posted earlier about the mudsill, which I
thought was disintegrated.

When I looked into the wall I saw the stud and
the sole plate, which sit on top of a parallel row of
cynder blocks. The joists apparently run
parallel with the wall so it is non-load
bearing.

How is this type of wall constructed? Is
the subfloor laid on top of the cement (cynder)
blocks and then the sole plate and wall nailed to
the subfloor? I only have the hollow cynder block
with a stud and sole plate. There doesn't seem to
be an anchor (or a 2x6)).
How is this edge of the subfloor connected to
the cynder blocks (non-load bearing)? :cool: :cool:
:cool: :cool: :cool: :cool:

Here is a small drawing:
