Personally, I would do a detailed check on your purchase agreement for other issues your agent might have missed. Hire a lawyer if you want to.

Read your contract (Residential Purchase Agreement and attachments) for the details about:
1.) The termite inspection and reports (it should outline if you asked for a report, who pays for it, how and when any issues discovered will be handled etc... ).
2.) Disclosure rules and deadlines. Typically the seller has 7 days to turn over all disclosures and current reports to you so that you have time during your 17 day contingency period to review them and make informed decisions.
In my opinion it is NOT "normal" to review a termite inspection for the first time this late in the game, especially after loan documents are signed. Ask your agent when he/she received the report.
Lastly, speak with your agent further about this if you have more concerns. The important thing is that the termite issue is being handled and you are about to be a home owner! Congratulations.

Look at the date of the disclosure. Some of those are signed when the listing is, so it might have been disclosed before the termite inspection and report was done. It's up to you to look at these things, and if you're not OK with that, to request an updated one.
Almost all properties will show some kind of termite damage after an inspection. If you waited until you found a home with no termite damage or active infestation at all, you'd still be looking. There's not a lot of inventory out there!

What you do know, is that you should have done your own Pest Inspection.
Who is paying for the Fumigation?
At this point, if it is expected to be YOU, I would talk to your Agent's Broker.
The way you word it, this is really not a big thing; it doesn't sound like the house is falling down:
Termites can move over to your house on any given day, particularly in a warm climate.
Good luck and may God bless
Is it "normal" to receive a disclosure or report so close to escrow closing? No.
