question about weaterproofing 2x4's


I had a contractor frame my garage this past spring.

I noticed right away that the footer 2x4 that sits on the slab is just regular lumber.

I thought that it should have maybe been pressure treated wood?

There is a foam strip between the slab and the 2x4.

Would it be possible or worthwhile to stain the bottom run of wood to prevent rotting?

Thanks for your help...
