Our basement was finished by the previous owners. This photo is taken from inside a storage closet. The other side of the door is the finished basement. Should the small section of foundation (see red arrows in photo below) also be covered by insulation?

All that concrete is going to be cold since its exterior wall, so I would say yes, insulate it.
