unobstructed ends to metal roofs??

we just had trusses installed over a basement house. the company put a rolled foil faced insulation down over the trusses and metal over that. there is a ridge vent w/ the foam/mesh type material under it. my question is at the other end of the panels....where the gutters will go. each little ridge profile of the roof leaves about a 1-2" gap for "critters" to get into. i'm assuming these gaps (the ridges in the metal panels) are how the roof is vented, but should there be a foam/mesh type material in them too? marco industries made the ridge vent material, but there website didn't show any products for the fascia end. any input will be appreciated.

I am not sure exactly how their vent is made but many do require some sort of mesh or foam closure.
