Zip R12 with Class III Vapor Retarder in Portland, ME Zone 6
For our house in Portland ME, Zone 6, here is the wall assembly we are planning:
Cedar Clapboard Siding (unfinished)
R23 Rockwool in 2×6 cavity
Sheetrock with latex paint
We are assuming we don’t need a vapor barrier on the inside of our wall given that we are above the R11.25 necessary to keep the sheathing dry. Is this sound?

I don't have a response to share but will bump your question as I'm curious to hear the replies also!
Yep, this meets the requirements shown in Table 2, derived from Table R 702.1 2018 International Residential Code. Okay, technically you're at 34%/66% instead of 35%/65%... but that doesn't really matter.
