Underlayment And Untreated Lumber

I'm remodeling a house that has an uneven slab. Some areas as much as 3 inches. So I hired a cement contractor to pour underlayment. Since some areas needed to rise 3 inches, it will rise above the pressure treated sole plate and be in contact with untreated studs. I had left a roll of building paper so that it be placed between the underlayment and bottom of wall. I left to a different jobsite, when I came back the job was complete and moisture barrier was not placed. Does anyone have any ideas for a quick repair. Was thinking of using diamond blade and cut a groove between underlayment and studs abd fill with silicone. Thanks in advanced.
