A few responses:

A window with a defective seal will fog inside in all seasons. Any inspections is as of the day of the inspection. Cant predict that it will fail next week.

The scope of most home inspections does not include minor defects and such. 2 hours is pretty quick. This inspector sounds sketchy, and doubly so if deficiencies were missed.

Its easy to tell if the caulking is done. Its very visible afterwards. It can also be done all year round using commercial grade caulking.

There is no serious water getting in concerns. If done properly, the house wrap will be taped and sealed against the window frame.
