I don't think it makes any difference with those areas where you suspect some gap between the insulation and stucco. I got that on my dome too, and even more so (the hollow knock) as I used blanket insulation as the primary insulator.
If any, those gaps or voids, although insignificant, probably helps insulate even more.

Thanks to you Muscats and fxpose.
I do have pictures if you follow the link at the bottom of this post.
The wire mesh is the usual lathe diamond shaped wires that you buy from Lowes or Home Depot, as you can see in the pictures(#102 and 103).
OOf what a relief, I was afraid I would have to take it out and do it again.
Well, this weekend I will apply the finish coat of the stucco, and that should enforce it a bit.

Thank you for your responses.
