Default Should vinyl siding vents line up with the existing vents?

They have started putting vinyl siding on my home and the vent holes in
the vinyl are at least a foot or two from where the existing vent holes
are.

I got a chance to look at some. It looks like they have put the vent
holes 4 ft on center in random locations. The existing vent holes are
8 ft on center.

I am guessing that having an extra hole in random locations instead of
a single hole where it is supposed to be is not as affective and a ****
poor way to do things.

I am going to ask them to change it. Anyone think this is unnecessary?

Are you talking about the overhang? I doubt it makes a difference. The
vinyl hangs below the old overhang so there will be airflow in between. The
overhang holes are for sucking in air. The key thing is lots of them and
hopefully a ridgevent in the roof.
