That would be a real industry tragedy were it true. Fortunately it is not true. Proper installation according to manufacturer specifications is critical though.

How do you find manufacturer information? We have three dormers and are putting a new steel roof and can't find any information. Not sure how to put flashing beside the dormer.

You should be contacting the manufacturer of the roofing material and get their product manual. I would be concerned if they do not have any available. Also check their prodiuct approval report which should have instructions. Failing that respond back with a picture of the dormer and the roof product and I will try to help.
