Default Vinyl Installation Window Question

Inspected home built in 2016 with vinyl widows installed and Fiber cement siding. Windows appear flush with siding on sides and bottom, but there is a gap at top.
Should this area be caulked? Does it appear to be installed correctly? If appropriate house wrap, tape and flashing are installed would this be a problem?
Is it the appropriate window to be installed with Fiber cement siding?
A lot of questions... but looking for answers/suggestions.
