I’m no builder but I have heard very different things from people who build in the south compared to those who build in Northern climates around vapor barriers. If they are used at all in the south they are recommended to be put on the outside of the building under the cladding.

I would call your local code department and talk to them. I have always found them helpful in the past and they should know the local best practices better than anyone.
