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

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:
