insulator behind the wall studs in garage

Hi all,
In my garage, I see silver foil looking cardboard behind the wall studs. It is thin, and cedar siding starts just after that. I attached some pics.

The house was built in 1983. Anyone know what this material is? What is this called? Is it common?

I dont recall the name but it's an exterior sheeting material!

Sort of a fiber board!
