vinyl window installation

This general contractor used block frame windows without nailing fins in our stick frame house and the windows are sliders. We were going to insulate around the inside of the trim and saw the jamb screws holding the window are screwed into the sheathing and not into the jamb or r/o. The contractor stated we don't have to cut any inside trim or exterior cedar sliding to the house using block frame windows without nailing fins. Is this install to code? Also, is this the appropriate windows that were installed in our home?

Should the flexible straight flash be underneath the siding, instead of being on top of the siding when he put the 1X4 trim on and caulked around the 1x4 trim.
