I would

Yes, I would ask the builder to install a secondary barrier. In fact, I would not accept the job without a secondary barrier even if my local code did not require it.

You might have to renegotiate the cost of the siding job to include the additional weather barrier if the cost wasn't included in the builder's bid, but even if you do have to pay a few dollars more, consider it money well spent.

You should also ask about how the builder intends to flash all doors and windows at this point as well, since this can remain a weak spot for water infiltration even if a secondary weather barrier has been used.
