I'm not going to claim to be an expert, but don't forget that it needs to be below the frame, or at least to stop the little buggers getting to the frame. So in that photo where you've drawn the blue line, the frame is sitting on the concrete behind that, so if they tried to install a barrier in the brick wall at the back of that little patio area it'd be very very close to the frame & maybe above it? Where the blue line is, wouldn't it stop the termites getting within a few metres of the frame?

it needs to be under the bottom plate of the frame and across any opening

Mesh anti-termite material is stuck to internal vertical edge of your concrete slab, extended out under your tiles or brick-work - with bricks, often at second course. Vital that external edge of your slab is kept clear so you are able to observe any termite tunnel building. (I swore never to mention that again).
Inside the house, mesh ant-termite material spreads around piping penetrations so as to adhere the concrete to pipes and minimise opportunities for termites to access voids.
And that's it....your real protection against the termite remains at observation and inspection over-time
