NEC ECC: Sectional Completion / Taking over with non essential uncorreceted defects

Can you take over on sectional completion and carry over simple defects to be corrected by the Completion Date?

Yes there is no problem with that. Completion is when the works have been done in accordance with Works Information/Scope and it is free of defects that would allow the Employer/Client to use the works. Same definition stands for any sectional completion. They are not off the hook in anyway as they are still obliged to correct their defects in accordance with section 4 of the contract.
