Where the wood meets the glass, caulk?


Got new wood windows in the spring, i live in michigan.

Where the glass meets the wood on the interior side, are you supposed to caulk or seal it?

With 0-10 degrees F they are condensating a little bit and worried about the water getting inbetween the wood and glass.

Already have the humidity cranked way down to 28% to reduce the condensation.

Only thing that should be there is paint.
A big mistake people do is scrape the paint off to close to the glass.
The paint should be making the wood to glass seal.
