    When equations are labelled in literature, do the equation numbers strictly have to be level with the equation? Is it acceptable (or even commonplace) for the equation number to be misaligned vertically? This might happen when the equation is too long to fit on one line and the equation number is subsequently bumped down a bit.

    Referring to my attached image, would the formatting of Eq. (3.22) be acceptable? Eq. (3.23) is just an example of something which is obviously acceptable.

    I think it depends, is this for a journal, a thesis, an undergrad project? Might be worth trying to shorten the equation slightly to get the numbering to fit, if it's for something important - otherwise I think it'd be fine. This is all personal opinion though, I don't have any experience with it.
