Subject: Installation mistakes(?) in progress

I am in the middle of a large nail-on install (almost 40 windows, Milgard Ultra). The windows, themselves seem to have been installed correctly based on what I've read on these boards, BUT:

after putting down flashing paper, putting down caulking of some kind, screwing the windows into place, and flashing over the nailing fin, there seems to be a problem with the last step: replacing the wood trim around the windows.

When the installers nailed the new wood trim in place, some of the nails have gone in very close to the window, such that some of the nails must have gone through the nailing fin. This seems like it would break the water barrier they had carefully built up when they put the window in.

Is this a problem, and if so, what's the best way to fix it where it's already happened?
