I'm doing the same as you did. I am going to seal the corner of the drywall and the sill plates with fireblock caulk and with fireblock foam for the sides where the sill plates are not flush with the concrete.
Since the xps and frames come after covering the caulk and foam seals, do you know how picky an inspector is for wanting to see that I did the fireblocking properly? I hate to tear down frame for such situation.
