Default Isomere insulation and roof ventilation

The roof is metal and the bldr put in isomere insulation against the substrate but did not ventilate - no ridge, soffit or gable vents. Said not needed bec of the "effect" of new type of insulation. Anyone have any experience with this type of insulation and ventilation?

Was that sprayed directly to the bottom of the metal panels ? Or to the bottom of the plywood decking ?

My understanding is it's the only approved way to "not vent" an attic.
