Brick over 1" foamboard on plywood


Do I need Tyvek if I use 1" foamboard over 1/2" plywood? The house is being bricked using poly weave and with proper weeping holes. Also should I caulk the outside of my mud/foundation sill plate?

How is the brick being tied to the walls? Normally the brick ties are nailed to the studs every 16" vertically and horizontally.
