Once a frequency coordinator signs off on an application, and the application has been submitted to the FCC, you can operate under Conditional Authority. It's perfectly legal for them to operate a MOTOTRBO base as long as it complies with the license modification that is pending.
The FCC is being pretty strict regarding DMR/TDMA/TRBO licensing in the VHF spectrum due to interference to adjacent frequencies, that's probably why there was an objection from IRAC. That doesn't mean the application was denied, however, it's still pending 2 months later.
Also, there aren't 7 repeaters on that license. There are 3 locations that have 154.220 licensed for repeater operations (2 entries for each site each with different emissions), and 1 location being added with 155.7975 licensed as a repeater. Whether or not 154.220 is actually active as a repeater at all three of those sites is the real question.
