"Wet insulation = less R Value & if in direct contact with sheathing it can get soaked (it still can with a gap if it drops on it - but that means you have an even bigger issue) As you said it all depends on just how much water vapor /…"

Sean Lintow Sr replied to Haley Keegan's discussion Baffles without soffit vents?
"Yes  insulation should never touch the sheathing unless it is meant to & designed as a hot roof system. The other item is future proofing - they may close off gables &/or install soffit venting later or even add inline / intake/ eave…"
