I think in Boston it's up to you. Paint is also a barrier of sorts but you do want to make sure you have no holes to allow house air into the attic and with the older house holes for wires and plumbing should also be checked not just for moisture but fire stop. The photo is what we do here.
These plastic boxes come in all sizs for light boxes and switch and outlet boxes for the walls. When we build interior wals we put poly between the two top plates, they did,t do that here so the had to add accustic sealer around the edges.
