It'll be much easier for you to put a window at framing stage then add on later ... but you can do that if you choose to...

As long as they are installed before the siding goes on you are O.K.

Cover the openings with Tyvec and get to building.

Just frame the rough opening and don't cut out the opening in the plywood until the windows get there,
