Window sealing

So I am in the process of finishing my basement. The builder did a poor job sealing around the windows, so I went back over it with foam. The excess will be trimmed when it's dry. My main concern is if there should be some sort of wrap or vapor barrier over the inside part of the rough opening? Seems to me there should be? Advice?

On the inside no, but typ the house wrap on the outside is wrapped into the window openings. which might be what is on the bottom only, and a window sill pan is installed along the bottom,
