Is it fair to consider a job complete if the actual work is done [e.g. building of a wall] but the snag list [e.g. missing plaster, incomplete paint job etc] is incomplete?

Completed work is –    “work ( which may still have snags to be completed) which has been completed which is deemed to satisfy that the works can be utilised for their intended purpose.”
Eg - A kitchen is not complete if the electrician has not connected the electricity even though everything else is 100% or the kitchen is being utilised but there remain few items for the contractor to still complete. ( in the latter case one would hold back an amount until 100% completion is realised.
