Skylight flashing

I recently had two deck mounted Velux skylights installed while having the roof on a 1900's farmhouse stripped and reshingled. these are the smallest model of the old step flashed style skylights. I noticed that the roofer didn't use ice and water to lapfrom the roof deck up the skylight flange prior to installing the step flashing. I have inspoected the step flashing and it appears to be propery installed. However, when prepairing to install the interior trim I noticed a sliver of light being reflected up the step flashing onto the top curb of the skylight indicating a gap in the flashing. I am wondering if this is normal or if I need to stril the shingles, remove the flashing and wrap the unit with ice and water as stated int he instructions?

Sorry for the spelling, I went to public school in Rhode Island

Skylight flashing

The Velux instructions say to use I&WS. I've seen condensation problems when it's not used.
