I thought there was a code change some years back prohibiting having receptacle above electric BB units... either is was removed or never there..
424.9 General. All ﬁxed electric space-heating equipment
shall be installed in an approved manner.
Permanently installed electric baseboard heaters equipped
with factory-installed receptacle outlets, or outlets provided as
a separate listed assembly, shall be permitted in lieu of a receptacle
outlet(s) that is required by 210.50(B). Such receptacle
outlets shall not be connected to the heater circuits.
Note: Listed baseboard heaters include instructions
that may not permit their installation below receptacle
