Look at the voids and gaps in the thinset. Lots of crazy places for interesting moisture behavior.

Agreed with the sentiment above: this job is hopeless: there are extensive flaws.

comment NM-B insulation repair?
Metal or plastic? Plastic j boxes have plastic clamps. For metal j boxes there's either a clamp built in, or you're meant to buy knockout clamps in the right size. The staple outside is required, but does not count as a clamp. Post photos.

See nfpa.org/freeaccess (For NFPA 70). The insulation does indeed need to reach past the clamp into each box.

According to the TCA Handbook for Ceramic Tile Installation: the cure period can fluctuate from 14 days to over 60 days, depending on the geographic location, the climatic conditions, and whether the installation is interior or exterior. But really the entire job has to come out, it has multiple flaws.

Remove commercial links that did not really need to be there.

comment How to determine what caused this “crack” on the wall?
Could it have caused it: yes. Was it their "fault": no. Moderate hammering would not itself be enough unless the original install was weak.
