Is this BT telephone socket wired up correctly?

I'm having quite a few noise issues on my phone line. Broadband is fine - pretty fast actually.

But if I remove the faceplate completely and use the bare test socket, there's NO dial tone... which is weird. But in the configuration in the photo, there is a dial tone (albeit crackly). Can someone explain this?

It looks really wrong to me. Like... why are there so many wires left unconnected? But I just want to check there's something wrong here before I escalate it to my ISP or BT
