My bet is the flashing is fine and so is the roof. The siders or framers probably have the housewrap behind the flashing. This was often done because they would build the walls and wrap them right away, then build the garage roof that meets it. Another thing, is maybe there is no house wrap at all. This wasn't always code.

Leaking roof


MJW

What!??
The roofers are supposed to slice the "house-wrap" and tuck the step
flashing underneath it!
Aren't they!?
We do that ALL the time in "Never-Never Land"!!
Ha, Ha, Ha !

Leaking roof


All!
My bet is, that it's the "usual" conglomeration of all or some of the problems
listed above.
Oh Boy!

Yes, you are right. When the house was originally built, you are correct. Which is what this appears to be.

We haven't done a new house in years, so I am geared more toward replacement lately.

Usually we do the roof and the siding, so then everything is new, properly flashed, and papered.

That siding and roof should be replaced soon anyways. Hopefully the OP gets a good installer and better materials.
