Do you mean "plywood over Tyvek (for ex)"? The house wrap (water resistant barrier) won't be doing what it is designed to do if it is under plywood. If you are looking for air tightness, goo and tape the plywood, then put the WRB over that. Make sure the goo is compatible w/ the house wrap, and won't damage it. People often add 1x furring strips, along studs, and put siding over that. That gives a drainage plane if water gets behind the siding.
