Sounds like you in Cal. Are you talking about bringing your branch circuits into the panel through a 2" k/o? If so the NEC don't allow it ether. Unless it is a surface mounted panel and then it only allows for it to inter through the top. Look at 312.5(C) exception

Each cable has to be secured. Running thru a LB and stubbing a nipple into a wall or crawl is a violation, with out securing the NM to the conduit.
Now 312.5 has an exception but it is limited. there are some other issues with running thru the LB such as wire fill and derating...

local inspecter applies this to outside residential panels , real ugly do do what do you think? (REAL UGLY DO DO?),... Sounds like you're on the receiving end of a joke, OR YOUR post was a joke. I'd Confront the Inspector and ask If he has a PROBLEM with your Panels and Go from there.
